Caring Role

I need help cooking/providing meals for my loved one

Why don’t you try? : Try a meal or ingredient delivery service

As you age, following a nutritious diet is essential to reduce your chronic disease risk and maintain good health.

However, many older adults may find it difficult to prepare nutrient-dense meals themselves, which may lead to nutritional frailty — a condition characterised by loss of muscle mass and strength. This may make them more susceptible to injury and illness.

Plus, older adults who don’t have the energy or ability to shop or cook may eat more convenience foods like fast food and frozen dinners. A high intake of these processed foods may harm health and shorten life span.

That’s why healthy meal delivery services are a good option for some older adults. They deliver meals and ingredients straight to your door and are easy to prepare.
