Eat well to age better

Written by by Laurie Syring, RD/LD. Posted in October

No one likes the idea of getting older, but like death and taxes, aging is a certainty for us all. 
What’s more, our overall population is getting older. By the year 2030, older adults will account for around 20 percent of the population—double what it is now. Two factors are contributing to this phenomenon: longer life spans (more and more Americans are living longer) and the aging of the baby boomers.

nobody's perfect | You have to eat something!

How did our mothers do it—cook three family meals a day for years?

It’s not like that in our world today! Lately, I have become aware that many people do not eat regular meals. Gone are the meals of our childhood, when we ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I remember that when I was growing up, all the kids in my neighborhood and my school ate breakfast, either packed a lunch or walked home for lunch, and then enjoyed a home-cooked meal for supper.
