This is for you who are already elder or having elder parents….

As people age their tastes and needs change, and it’s important to take this into account to make meals healthy and nutritious. A good meal can really give someone a lift.

In time there may well be medical issues to be considered, and those can be addressed to some extent with the right personalized diet. While obesity is a challenge at any age for many of us, older people can often be at risk of malnutrition if they are not eating well. Problems with teeth and dentures might mean chewy food should be avoided. The texture of certain foods can also have a detrimental effect on the digestion.
