Nutrition needs change as people age, dietitian says

Digestive Health SmartBrief | Dec 17, 2014

Nutrition needs change as people get older, but staying hydrated is important at any age, registered dietitian Tamara Melton says. Young adults in their 20s need calcium-rich foods, while those in their 40s should make sure they get enough fiber. Melton said people older than 60 should eat eggs for eye health and foods that support digestive health, such as asparagus, bananas, legumes and yogurt. KVLY-TV/KXJB-TV (Fargo/Grand Forks, N.D.)
