If your senior parent struggles with preparing fresh, healthy meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, encourage them to buy frozen fruits and vegetables to incorporate into simple, nutritious meals. Frozen fruits and vegetables act as healthy substitutes for fresh – here’s why:
- Frozen fruits and vegetables tend to have higher levels of antioxidants, mostly because freezing helps preserve beneficial nutrients.
- Frozen fruits and vegetables require little preparation. Washing, peeling and chopping fruits and vegetables may seem like a tiring or even daunting task for your elderly loved one. Steaming a bag of broccoli in the microwave or thawing a bag of peaches requires little effort with great nutritious benefits.
- The grocery store frozen foods section offers a variety of frozen fruits and vegetables, from raspberries to pineapple to corn to green beans. Frozen vegetables can be dressed with olive oil and pepper and paired with rice and frozen fruits can be paired with orange juice to make fruit smoothies or can top a bowl of oatmeal.
If you feel that your senior parent needs help managing a balanced diet, contact Synergy HomeCare ANAHEIM HILLS. Our trained caregivers will help your loved one plan, shop and prepare for simple, healthy meals.
