The food needs of the elderly are slightly different than those of the younger ones. Due to the taste, taste problems and the presence of various diseases in the elderly, it is important to pay special attention to their food at this age. When preparing food for an elderly person at home, check if he has diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, kidney complications, etc., or what their condition is. Many people cannot chew for stroke or dental problems. And with age, there is noise in digestion, constipation. They have to keep their diet in mind. Adequate amount of fruits, vegetables — Put one or two fruits on the menu every day. It can be banana, apple, orange, litchi, papaya, mango etc. In the case of vegetables, put fresh green vegetables on the list. However, keep in mind whether there is a problem with digestion. Spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, colorful vegetables such as eggplant, carrots, tomatoes, etc. are rich in minerals and vitamins. But if you have gastric or digestive problems, give easily digestible vegetables like raw papaya, gourd, jali etc. As we age, our bones begin to decay, so it is important to have enough calcium in our daily routine. It is possible to prevent problems such as osteoporosis and bone fractures. Some good sources of calcium are milk, yogurt, cheese, any milk product, broccoli, tofu, nuts, cauliflower. Choose good fats without completely eliminating fats. Such as omega-3 added fats. Fish and nuts are rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These foods keep the brain fresh and help prevent Alzheimer's. Adequate amount of protein should be eaten. However, in case of protein intake, you can eat fish, chicken, peas, pulses, eggs, nuts and any vegetable seeds. However, in case of kidney problems and increased uric acid, consult a doctor in case of protein intake. As digestion decreases with age, there is constipation due to decreased digestive tract, so it is important to keep fiber in the diet. Wholegrain rice, red flour or oats have fiber. Also in fruits and vegetables. If needed, you can give all this, Tokma etc. Hypoglycemia is more common in adults with diabetes. So you have to give food six or seven times throughout the day. Even if it is a little, you have to pay it again and again. Meal schedule should be kept right. Dinner should be taken a little earlier. Many people become accustomed to liquid or semi-liquid foods. In that case malnutrition can occur if balanced diet is not given. Mix enough protein, such as fish, meat, eggs, and vitamin-rich vegetables, in a blender or oatmeal. Just porridge made from rice or semolina will not be nutritious. All kinds of food must be given. If necessary, seek the help of a nutritionist for a special type of calorie chart.
