The risk of malnutrition often occurs even before hospital admission. More than one-third of patients are malnourished when they enter the hospital. It’s no surprise that malnutrition can negatively affect their clinical outcomes and increase costs.

Most older adults want flavorful, convenient, and healthy meals. However, after hospitalization or managing a chronic illness, it may not be possible to shop and prepare meals. There are a variety of meal services that provide home-delivered meal options. Before making your choice, you may want to consider the benefits of frozen home-delivered meals.
With nutritious, wholesome, and convenient dishes in high demand, frozen meals are the perfect solution. Yet there is still a commonly held belief that they are just processed and filled with preservatives. And while that may have been true 20 years ago, the food industry has evolved with pressure from health-conscious consumers who are looking for healthier frozen meals that are easier to find and prepare.
As we continue to celebrate National Nutrition Month here at GA Foods, we want to help spread the word about healthy eating!
National Nutrition Month® is a nutrition education, and information campaign celebrated every March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. You can significantly impact your overall health by making small changes in your eating and physical activity routine.
Medically-tailored meals provide the right nutrition for those managing chronic conditions. Studies show that food is medicine for the prevention, management, and treatment of disease.
Falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries among older adults. The right nutrition can help to reduce this risk. As we age, our bodies react differently, and a fall can be life-threatening.
February is American Heart Month! Now is an excellent time to take charge of your heart health. Regular visits to your doctor to check your blood pressure and cholesterol are simple ways to know your heart disease risk factors.
Counting the number of candles on a birthday cake is not as important as appreciating each year of life! Each year brings new experiences, challenges, and accomplishments.
