The secret of a healthy elderly starts from their diet

You Are What You Eat, another phrase that uses to inspire elderly and their family to notice the importance of health for the elderly. As you get older, your whole body system’s functions decreases, this will then results in several health issues. Therefore, having a knowledge of common health conditions associated with the elderly is very important.

A lot of families are now trying to encourage the elderly to exercise together in order to keep fit, for example arm-swinging, jogging, swimming and yoga. Clean eating is also an important factor of keeping the elders healthy, by consuming food with high fat will not be good for the digestive system, which will then result in having leftover foods in the intestine. Consuming too much sodium can also cause a kidney disease.

The secret in choosing the appropriate food for the elderly starts from these 3 steps.

- Reduce white rice, increase brown rice because older people cannot digest carbohydrate and sugar well, and there are lots of good vitamins in the brown rice for the health.
- Reduce meat, increase fruits and vegetables because the fibres in fruits and vegetable will help with the digestive system
- Have vegetable soup regularly, because there are full of nutritious, easy to eat and also increase the appetite.
