A Vision for the Future: Food Assistance for Senior Adults in Kansas
Invest in Yourself
Eating
Regularly
Shopping
Wisely
You may want to try eating smaller,
more frequent “mini-meals” through
the day rather than eating one or
two larger meals.
Eat slowly and chew food well.
Stretch your budget by keeping meat, poultry
and fish portions small, while adding other
less expensive protein foods such as eggs,
peanut butter, beans and milk products to
your meals.
Eating a
Variety
Drinking
Plenty of
Liquids
Food assistance is available for older adults.
Ask your local Senior Center for information.
Eating
with
Friends
Plan meals with friends.
Set a pretty table and listen to
music while you eat.
Keeping
Active
Choose whole grains, beans, low-fat
milk products, fruits and colorful
vegetables.
Improve the taste of foods by adding
herbs or spices.
All parts of the body need water to
function.
Drink at least 8 servings of water,
100% juice, milk, or other liquids
each day.
Physical activity can help keep you
healthy. You may feel more like
doing things and your appetite
may improve.
Make physical activity a regular
part of your day.
