1Nutrition Requirements
Seniors should aim to eat a balanced diet that includes a variety of foods from all food groups, including fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy. This can help ensure that they receive all the essential nutrients they need for good health.

Seniors are at an increased risk of dehydration due to a decrease in thirst sensation and kidney function. It is important to encourage seniors to drink water and other fluids regularly throughout the day to maintain hydration.
