  • For children and people with smaller appetites, mini versions of foods are less overwhelming and can encourage them to eat more. Sliders, pinwheel sandwiches or mini quiches can be served as small meals and snacks to provide energy and protein throughout the day.
  • Salmon and other fatty fish such as Arctic char, mackerel and sardines are excellent sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s are needed for brain development and function. Diets that are rich in omega-3s may reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease and improve mental function in older adults.
  • Avocadoes are high in calories in the form of oleic acid, a type of fat which may help lower heart disease risk. The oleic acid in avocadoes also helps the body absorb more carotenoids, a type of antioxidant found in bell peppers and other vegetables that may reduce cancer risk.
