What reporters should know about nutrition and aging

Eating “well” is critical throughout the lifecycle to prevent chronic disease, and support both physical and mental health. Each stage of life presents unique nutritional needs and challenges; however, dietitians who work with seniors, or adults, aged 65 and older, consistently identify the following nutrition-related concerns specific to aging, many of which are interrelated and influence a senior’s ability to live independently.

Reporters should be aware of these concerns and explore how the community and those who support seniors are addressing these needs.
