The quote “Never judge a book by it’s cover” can also be applied to nutrition and food. For example, although we can all agree for the most part that green vegetables are healthy, some may not be appropriate for Elderly and Senior individuals. Certain foods have some bacteria that makes it harder for Elderly and Senior individuals to fight off germs inside the body and as a result, they could end up getting sick; whereas for a younger person, eating the food might not be as big of an issue.
Caregivers who prepare meals for Elderly individuals on a daily basis should be aware of certain foods that although healthy, might cause problems for Elders or Seniors. This article talks about foods such as raw seafood, sprouts, soft cheeses, unpasteurized milk & juice, ceviche, Montecristo sandwiches, tiramisu, and others that could cause some type of food-borne illness.
