Are your patients feeling sluggish, drowsy, or down? This can be their bodies telling them to eat more nutrient-rich foods. Good nutrition is important to healthy aging, and National Nutrition Month is the perfect time for your patients to develop some good habits. Our bodies and nutritional needs change as we age, making it more important to make healthy choices at every meal.
Celebrate National Nutrition Month by educating your patients on healthy aging and encouraging them to adopt lifestyle choices that can make them feel better inside and out.
