NICOLE GLENNON – Ditch the tea, take Vitamin D: New diet advice for over 65s

Summary:
Ditch the tea at mealtimes? That won't be easy after a lifetime of enjoying a cuppa after a meal. I bought some nice Red Bush (Roibos) tea the other day, though, which is said not to affect mineral absorption. Anyway, I'm not 65 yet, although not long to go. This is to maintain muscle and bone density. Adults aged 65 and above have been advised to avoid consuming tea with meals, start taking a Vitamin D supplement and eat a more protein-dense diet to stimulate muscle growth.Written by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland’s (FSAI) Scientific Committee at the request of the Department of Health, the updated national recommendations are designed to help “enhance older people’s nutritional well-being with the ultimate aim of improving health in later life.” Irish ExaminerNICOLE GLENNON -
