Nutrition forms the foundation for good health. Yet as people age, they often find it difficult to maintain a balanced diet. Elders who struggle with poor dentition or ill-fitting dentures may experience discomfort with chewing, which can lead to decreased food intake. Sometimes older family members lose the energy to cook for themselves and instead rely on convenience foods that may be less than healthy.
