Nutrition is one of the most important components of holistic wellness, especially for seniors. It may be true that some aging adults may need less calories, but that doesn’t mean they need less nutrients! Unfortunately, there are some challenges that can inhibit getting the proper nutrients such as decreased mobility, less of taste or smell due to age or certain medications, or perhaps living alone, which can rob seniors of their motivation to cook for themselves.


However, getting the proper nutrients has big benefits so it’s worth striving to combat those challenges. Eating nutrient-dense, healthy foods can provide energy, stabilize blood sugar, and decrease the chances of developing all sorts of chronic conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, osteoporosis, high blood pressure, and even some cancers.


Eating healthy does not need to be elaborate. In fact, it can be as simple as eating a variety of fruits, vegetables, dairy, and whole grains, and minimizing the consumption of sugars, sodium, and preservatives.

For those that attend Landis Adult Day Services, a continental breakfast, plus lunches and snacks are prepared with this approach in mind because we know the value of prioritizing nutrition. We also know how challenging it can be at times for seniors to prioritize their own nutrition. After all, a decreased appetite and a decreased sense of smell and taste can greatly impact the diet and strip the enjoyment from eating entirely. But the culinary professionals at Landis Adult Day Services take these challenges into account and they prepare lunches and snacks that are both delicious and nutritious.
