Eating well – help for older people and their carers


One of the main nutrition challenges facing older Australians today is ensuring they are eating enough nourishing food. Eating enough means being able to maintain a healthy weight and even having a little extra weight in reserve for times of illness or stress.

This book and brochure contains valuable information to help guide you and your clients on what to eat to stay strong and healthy.

The book contains practical food and nutrition ideas and advice for older people, their carers and support workers.

Included in the book is information on the importance of eating enough protein; the value of dairy foods; importance of vitamin D; teeth, mouth or swallowing problems, food safety and exercise – as well as much more. Now available to download for free from Central Coast Local Health District.
