Food & Nutrition
As you grow older, good nutrition becomes increasingly important. Not eating well is one of the major reasons why older people become sick, frail and lose their independence. If you are unsure as to how well you are eating, ask yourself the following questions.
If you answered “YES” to any of the above questions then you may not be eating well enough to stay healthy. Nutrition Australia has an excellent cookbook for older people called Adding Life to Your Years
NSW Health produces a range of information sheets in English and other community languages.
