Good nutrition habits and knowledge for Elderly and Senior individuals is of vital importance for reaping the various health benefits of food. Certain foods and vegetables can aid in lowering blood sugar or blood pressure levels, improving eye health, or fighting off chronic diseases that come with aging. Nobody likes to eat a plain and repetitive meal, which is why exploring different types of food is of great importance, especially for Elders whose favorite time of day is breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
Check out this article that gives some suggestions for summertime foods and snacks that have more health benefits than you may have known. Among the types of food mentioned are watermelon, iceberg lettuce, party dip, popcorn, and spices. Some Elders and Seniors may have difficulty enjoying their food without sauces, and spices are a great alternative to enhancing the flavor of food in addition to having health benefits.
