March is National Nutrition Month and March for Meals. On this program, Linda Lane talks about how important good nutrition is for all of us and the importance of good nutrition for seniors. Food is medicine, and depending on what we eat or don’t include in our diets, our health is affected. Good nutrition is one of the factors that can keep people healthy after being released from the hospital and can thwart unnecessary readmissions. What are the barriers for seniors eating well, and what help is available to provide seniors and those challenged with making nutritious meals with a well-balanced, healthy meal?
Independent Living’s Evening Meals on Wheels and other noon Meals on Wheels programs are available to provide nutritious, delicious meals to those who would not otherwise have them. Dietary restrictions can be accommodated including vegetarian, diabetic and gluten-free requirements. Nutritious food helps sustain healthy living!
