vitamins and minerals
Vitamins and Minerals
  • Older adults may have increased needs due to:
    • Decreased utilization
    • Multiple medications
    • Lack of variety in diet
  • Older adults need adequate amounts to help aid in digestion and prevent constipation caused by inactivity, poor diet, inadequate fluid intake or medications.
  • Chewing, swallowing or dental problems may decrease intake.

  • Problems with continence may impede fluid intake
  • Dehydration can produce an array of cognitive and physical changes
individual plan of care
Individual Plan of Care

  • Participants with nutrition problems may require intervention by a registered dietitian, speech therapist or other health care practitioner
liberalized diets
Liberalized Diets
  • Diets that are highly restrictive and deny favorite foods can result in poor dietary intakes and unplanned weight loss
  • Quality of life can be enhanced with a more liberal approach to therapeutic diets

Use the Simplified Food Buying Guide or the Food Buying Guide for Child Nutrition Programs. Record the yields (meat/meat alternate in ounces, fruit/vegetable in ¼ cup servings and bread/bread alternate in ½ slice bread or equivalent.

Determine the number of 1.5 ounce meat/meat alternate for children 3-5 years olds by dividing the total by 1.5 or by 2 to find number of servings for 6-12 year olds.

Round the total for fruit/vegetables and bread/bread alternate down to the nearest whole number to find the number of servings.
