Nutrition means something different to everyone. But the one thing all people needs is good nutrition and this varies throughout your life. Our nutritional needs when we are younger to what we need when we are older will vary. It varies in the amounts of foods we need and the quality of the nutrition we consume. Therefore, nutrition is important through every stage of our life.
Nutrition support is very important and as we age we often rely upon meal support. Regardless of the stage of life, good nutrition is essential. That means eating a wide variety of foods from all the food groups – bread, cereals, fruit, vegetables, meats and dairy. Eating well all through your life is the key to approaching your elder years in best physical health.
