Proper nutrition is essential for seniors. That is because the body loses its ability to sense hunger and thirst as we get older, making it more difficult to realize when we need to eat or drink throughout the day. When seniors do not realize that they are hungry or thirsty, they do not get the nutrients their bodies need to stay healthy.
As you will see in this video, it is a good idea for seniors to include plenty of vegetables in their diets. A variety of vegetables provides many different nutrients and a wider selection of flavors from which to choose. Seniors can also get some of the fluids they need to stay hydrated from certain vegetables and vegetable-based soups.
