Top Tasting Meals Using Local Ingredients
Taste and smell can alter with age, and this can affect appetite and enjoyment of food. Reduced smell and taste may tend to render food bland and unappetising. This is why we make sure we only use fresh herbs and seasonings in our meals to engage all your senses and set your taste buds alight!
We understand that dietary requirements change with age, and it can be difficult to enjoy a balanced diet once these needs change. This is why we always keep the elderly in mind when it comes to preparing our meals.
We used locally sourced ingredients from allotment owners; butchers and Birmingham based wholesalers to ensure you get the best and freshest food. We make sure your meals are balanced not only nutritionally, but from a calorie perspective too.
Important Nutrition Information for the Elderly
As there is a lack of specific nutritional recommendations for the elderly, we believe having the right information is important when purchasing meals for yourself, or on behalf of a loved one. So here are a few health factors to keep in mind when purchasing your ready meals.
We have listed some of the most important and essential vitamins and minerals to ensure an adequate and balanced diet:
- Omega 3 – Protects against heart disease and arthritis that can be found in fatty fish such as Salmon, nuts and cod liver oils.
- Calcium – Maintains bone health and can be found in Broccoli, Tofu, leafy greens, lentils and beans.
- Fibre – Protects against heart disease and Type 2 diabetes. High fibre foods include items such as Yam, Green Banana, Pasta, Broccoli, Carrots, Potato skins, nuts and seeds.
- Vitamin B12 – Protects against anaemia. Foods high in Vitamin B12 include Beef, Tuna, Trout and cereals.
- Vitamin D – Protects against osteoporosis, muscle weakness and heart disease. Vitamin D is high in foods such as Kale, Callaloo, Spinach, Soya beans and Salmon.
