New Booklet On Healthy Eating For Older People Launches

A booklet aimed at preventing malnutrition in older people has been launched by the Brighton and Hove Food Partnership and Age UK Brighton & Hove.

Called ‘Eating well to stay healthy as you age’, the booklet contains helpful information on what to eat to reduce the risks of malnutrition as we get older.

AttendeesMalnutrition is usually defined by low bodyweight, or unintended or sudden weight loss.
Aiming to combine preventative advice with practical tips on eating well, the new 16-page booklet covers how to know if you or someone you care for is in danger of malnutrition with key signs to look out for.

 

 

The booklet gives advice how to eat well when appetite is low and some nutritious snacks and light meals. It also gives details of local support services, lunch clubs and options for home delivery as alternatives to meals on wheels.

Copies of the free booklet are now available to collect from The Food Partnership, who are based in the Brighthelm Centre in central Brighton and other community locations. You can also download a digital copy of the booklet from both organisations’ websites.

If you have any questions for Age UK Brighton & Hove or the Food Partnership regarding the booklet and the research behind it, please contact Claire from Age UK on 01273 720603 ClaireG@ageuk-bh.org.uk or Jo from the Food Partnership on 01273 431700 jol@bhfood.org.uk.
