"Put Your Best Fork Forward"
Created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the campaign "Put Your Best Fork Forward" serves as a reminder that each one of us holds the tool to make healthier food choices.
For older adults, good nutrition is especially important. As we age, our bodies process food differently. This in turn can affect our dietary needs and appetite. Although there may be a natural decline in one’s appetite during aging, maintaining a well- balanced diet is key to overall health and wellness.
Here are a few tips for healthy eating all year long:
- Incorporate fruits and vegetables
- Opt for Whole Grains
- Vary Your Source of Proteins
