The Importance Of Nutrition

April 12, 2016

How important is nutrition to our bodies? It can make the difference between having a great day or, in cases of malnutrition, taking a trip to the hospital.

 

Proper nutrition is vital to the body, and becomes more important as we age. This is partly due to the fact that the aging body sometimes makes it difficult to take in the nutrition our bodies require. Loss of appetite due to various medicines or other issues in the body, difficulty chewing, or dry mouth are only a few of the reasons why so many people are calorie and mineral deficient.

 

Make a decision today to be more aware of your food intake. Proper nutrition can help ensure you feel your best and may help you avoid some of the problems associated with poor nutrition.

 

  • Eat foods packed with nutrients

  • Have a healthy snack between meals

  • Add color to your plate – leafy greens and green, red or yellow vegetables are packed with vitamins and minerals

  • Don’t just eat when you feel hungry, or you may find yourself skipping meals and missing out on key calories and important nutrients

  • Consult your doctor if you’re experiencing loss of appetite or have any concerns about the quality or balance of your food intake and how it may be affecting your body!
