Food and Nutrition


Nutrition is a very important component of healthy aging. As adults age, changes in body composition and organ function affect food choices, which ultimately affects health and nutritional status.

Choosing foods within Canada's Food Guide will help adults stay healthy and delay the onset of chronic diseases, such as heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, and high blood pressure. In addition, specific recommendations are given for vitamin D supplementation for people over 50 years of age. 


Try the Eating Habits Survey  on the EatRight Ontario website and check out their resources for older adults.

The following resources offer great tips for seniors to make healthy eating choices.
