Breakfast is often referred to as the most important meal of the day. However, as we grow older, our appetites decrease. When seniors lose interest in food, it is difficult for them to get the nutrition they need. If you notice your elderly parent skipping breakfast and losing weight, it’s important to get involved.
If your elderly parent won’t eat, you are probably both concerned and frustrated. So, what can you do if your loved one keeps telling you that they just aren’t hungry?
It can be difficult to know why your elderly loved one has lost interest in food. This is especially true if you loved one doesn’t know why.
A well-balanced diet is critical to remaining healthy as we age. Unfortunately, one in four older Americans has poor nutrition.
