Proper Nutrition for Elderly

Proper Nutrition for Elderly

Our aging loved ones need special attention to their health and wellness. Getting older entails age-related challenges such as malnutrition and illnesses. This is where food nutrition becomes one of the critical aspects that can be readily addressed at home. 

If you have aging parents and grandparents, you can focus on the essential nutrients needed. Here are the most important nutrients according to medical experts.

Proper Nutrition for Elderly

Calcium and Vitamin D 

The elderly need sufficient calcium and vitamin D to help maintain bone health. To provide these nutrients, choose calcium-rich foods and beverages and plan to include three servings of low-fat or fat-free dairy products each day.  

Vitamin B12 

Some of them may not be able to absorb enough vitamin B12 when they reach 50 years old. Thus, their meal plan must include fish and seafood. Dietitian and physician may recommend taking supplements. 

Dietary Fiber 

Fibre-rich food should be also incorporated in food preparations to lower their risk of heart disease and Type 2 Diabetes. Some of the healthy options are whole-grain bread, cereals, and beams.


The right portion of potassium and salt can lower your risk of high blood pressure. The good sources of potassium are fruits, vegetables, beans, and low-fat dairy products. 

Healthy fats 

Use polyunsaturated and monosaturated fats that can be found in nuts, seeds, avocado, vegetable oil, and fish. This food can help reduce the risk of heaty disease. 


Now, you know the ideal choices of food. The next step is using a healthy way of cooking. To ensure nutritious food is given, you must use toxin-free cookware. Nutricraft is known to serve nutrition in every meal because of Titanium cookware products.
