Healthy habits like eating well and being physically active can help you reduce your risk of chronic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis. Research shows that it’s never too late to make smarter food choices and add healthy habits. But, many older adults face preventable barriers to accessing the food that they need to remain healthy and independent. This book provides advice on what and how much to eat, as well as how to overcome challenges to maintaining a healthy eating pattern.
