  • Choose snacks that have fibre and protein, this is a great idea especially for those with low appetite.
  • Zucchini is rich in lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants that are needed for a healthy immune system. Lutein may help protect the eyes from macular degeneration, a decline of eyesight due to aging.
  • Walnuts are an excellent source of the omega-3 fatty acid alpha linolenic acid (ALA), with ¼ cup providing 95% of the omega 3s most people need in a day.​​​​
