Cooking for Seniors: How to Make Great Tasting Food for the Senior Palate

 

One of the ongoing challenges for caregivers is contending with the changing reality of seniors’ nutritional needs. Older adults need a different balance of nutrients to ensure physical and mental health, and there are also medications to consider that can interfere or interact with the drugs seniors take.

Fortunately, healthy senior meals don’t have to be devoid of flavor or excitement.

Check out our tips for some nutritious alternatives that will kick the flavor up a notch and have your whole family cleaning their plates.
