CHAPTER12

Your Lifetime Nutritional Needs

In This Chapter

  • How many calories do you need?
  • A look at childhood obesity
  • The link between nutrition and aging
  • Nutritional guidelines for seniors

Your nutritional needs change throughout your life. You wouldn’t expect a 20-year-old woman to eat the same things she did at age 2. And she won’t eat the same things at age 70 she does now.

Regardless of your age, it’s important to stay within a healthy calorie range for your age group. In this chapter, we explore your changing nutritional needs as you age, with a particular focus on senior years.
