  • ​Caregivers have such an important role, and may often need to help their loved ones with many daily challenges including preparing meals and snacks. Keeping the person you care for nourished can really help them get through a difficult time.
  • If your loved one has a low appetite or is having trouble maintaining his or her weight, be sure to choose a recipe that is high in protein and calories. This will help make every bite count. Nuts and dried fruit are high in calories and rich in nutrients, making them good choices to boost the calories in a recipe.
  • Skim milk powder and other protein powders are helpful in boosting the protein of smoothies, snacks and desserts. You can also make high protein milk by mixing 1 cup of whole milk with ¼ cup skim milk powder. This will provide 14 grams of protein.
  • This recipe is a great make-ahead option. Make large batches and individually freeze the truffles on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Then place in freezer-friendly bags or containers so they are ready to grab on the go. You and your loved one have quick, healthy snacks to bring to long days of traveling to appointments.
