Ways to improve nutritional intake

Readily available, easily accessible, and nutrient-rich foods can help improve the intake of important nutrients. In the case of a reduced appetite that may be common in many people as they age, the availability of nutritious snacks is a helpful way to improve nutritional intake between meals. Fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, cheese or oral nutritional supplements can all be added to meals or eaten as snacks to help reduce the risk of malnutrition.
