Getting the nutrition and exercise I need
  • Ensure you have a nutritious diet including food from all of the food groups
  • Help to prevent weight loss and retain muscle by eating enough calories and protein
  • Check to see if you still need to be on a ‘special’ diet (example, for diabetes or cholesterol)
  • Consume dairy, ideally full cream
  • Get outside and get some Vitamin D!
  • Consume 6-8 glasses of fluid each day
  • Regular meals and snacks
  • Connect with people and make eating social
