The Power of Nutrition

A balanced diet for good health

There are many starting points for improving our diet

Often only small changes are needed to adjust our own nutrition to rediscover the Taste for Life and vitality.

If our portions become smaller, it is particularly crucial to select high-quality foods which supply us with many important nutrients and thus ensure that our body is optimally supplied.

First steps for a balanced diet

  • Choose foods with high-quality protein, e.g. milk, meat, fish
  • Improve your intake of vitamins and minerals, e.g. eat fresh vegetables and fruits
  • Look out for healthy fats and oils, e.g. olive oil, rapeseed oil
  • Eat less sweets
  • Eat foods that are rich in fibre, e.g. whole grain bread
  • Pay attention to having small, frequent meals or snacks
  • Supplement with nourishing drinks or snacks between meals
  • Have frozen or ready to consume meals and snacks in your kitchen
  • Use fortified foods or oral nutritional supplements such as Fresubin to increase your nutrient intake

Nutrition and exercise complement each other
