The first of the baby boomers reached 65 in 2011 and by 2030, the 65 and older will number one in five. Most experts agree that the dietary needs of people in their 50s or 60s are different from those in their 70s and 80s. SO for baby boomers or those approaching middle age, diet and nutrition is going to be a very important aspect of this life.
George Georgiou, from middle aged health website http://www.m7secret.com, notes "Although many people enjoy a generally healthy mid life, age-related health problems do increase with advancing years and often have an effect on eating habits. There is an amazing amount of evidence to show that an optimal level of nutrition can extend the lifespan and improve the quality of life."
Good eating habits in general throughout life can greatly help promote physical and mental well-being. And for those entering mid-life, eating right can help to minimize the symptoms of age-related change that, for some, can cause discomfort or inconvenience.
