Nutritional needs of those over 80

Suggested nutritional needs for those over 80 years of age

We can prepare soups of greens and yellow foods. When we buy organic whole chicken, we can use the bone broth to combine with various veggies and save them in the freezer for weeks supply.

Supplementation is a must when healthy foods are not served regularly. A dessert can be served in moderation.
