With a balanced and varied diet, we can remain active longer
If we are on an unbalanced diet or only eat small infrequent meals, we increase the risk of poor or inadequate nutrition. Over a longer time period our body then lacks vital nutrients, and the first symptoms of deficiencies appear.
When age-induced changes affect quality of life, the focus is often on medical questions and drugs. For ageing adults in particular, a good nutritional status is an important prerequisite for remaining active and enjoying a good quality of life.
