What prevents a senior from good nutrition: Mealtime, Food and Senior Nutrition (3 of 5)

This video addresses what can prevent a senior from having good nutrition and what warning signs to look for. As we age our abilities to taste and smell diminish. Certain medications can affect these senses as well. So your senior loved one might say food doesn't taste like it used to. Other older adults may have some physical challenges such as dental or swallowing problems or ability to hold or open food containers. As a result some seniors choose to eat less or not at all, which can result in not getting proper nutrients.
