Balanced nutrition has a central role in physical health and quality of life for older adults. Our Senior Principal Dietitian, Mary-ann Chiam, highlights hydration, dietary diversity, including leafy greens, fruits, lean protein, and whole grains, moderate consumption of processed foods, portion control, and the selection of healthy fats.
