What to do When Your Loved One is Being Finicky About Eating
Focus on what your loved one likes to eat rather than your idea of the perfect nutrition. Unless there are medical reasons for a specific diet, it’s important that they eat for pleasure and get enough calories.
Make available a variety of reasonably healthful high-calorie choices.
Season liberally with herbs and other flavorings to make foods more enticing.
Serve micro-meals through the day rather then the “big three”.
Mention the behavior to the doctor to rule out a medical cause.
Realize that some older adults forget to eat because of memory problems.
