Healthy Eating for Retirees

Why is it important

Two of the most important things you can do for healthy aging (at any age) are: maintain a healthy weight and eat a nutrient-rich diet. Choose more fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and complex carbohydrates; and fewer sugary-sweetened beverages and processed foods. Eat at least 5 baseball-sized servings of fruits and vegetables daily.
