When you reflect back on your childhood, you may have memories of cooking with your mother in the kitchen that stand out to you. Memories of waking up early on Saturday mornings to strap on your patterned aprons and getting straight to business. While you could be cooking meals for the whole family or just trying out fun new recipes, the memories made will never be forgotten. Cooking together is a tradition that most families can relate to in some way or another.
At Oaks Senior Living, we focus on preparing quality meals for our residents to not only enjoy, but also include the right nutrients and ingredients to promote healthy living. For a long time the food pyramid has given us a look at a balanced approach to the foods we should be consuming daily. Not everyone has the time to reread the pyramid and build an active schedule to follow but also risk serious health issues such as malnutrition. Especially for our aging loved ones in senior living communities it’s important to eat the right foods to stay focused to maintain an active lifestyle!
