As you get older, eating healthily can be a challenge. Maintaining good eating habits can become more difficult as bodies and therefore requirements change. Changes to your body’s kilojoule (Calorie) and nutrient needs, sense of taste and smell, dentition (teeth) and changes to your ability to access and prepare food can be a normal part of getting older. These factors, whether they appear by themselves or in combination, can make staying nourished trickier than it may seem. Small changes to what or how you eat may result in big returns in terms of your health.
