As they age, seniors may face certain challenges regarding proper nutrition. Medications they take may cause appetites to diminish or foods to taste differently. Some may lose interest in eating nutritious meals because they find it hard to cook for one and feel lonely when dining alone. In addition, metabolic rates lower with age meaning fewer calories are required to maintain an ideal weight. Keeping these issues in mind, it is critical for seniors to understand how to manage their nutritional needs as they get older.
