Montana’s Rural Health Initiative hosts regular webinars. Here are the upcoming events!
Nutrition for Seniors in the Senior Meal Programs Webinar Series
This will be a series of four webinars that focus on the nutrition and health needs of seniors. The webinars are intended for Program Managers and Staff of the meal programs at senior sites who plan and prepare meals for the Senior Nutrition Programs. The programs include Congregate Meals and Home Delivered Meals – better known as Meals On Wheels. Good nutrition is a very significant factor in improving and maintaining health in the later years. Proper food choices that focus on key nutrients play a major role in keeping seniors healthy and active.
The first webinar, Nutrition for Seniors in the Senior Meal Programs, will be May 31, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. The webinar will focus on the current nutrition recommendations for a healthy diet in later years. The webinar will also discuss the amount and variety of food to be included in meal planning. Most Senior Nutrition Programs offer one hot meal a day and this is often the only good meal for many seniors. It is critical that these meals maximize good nutrition for their clients.
