Food Matters: Looking at diet needs in later life

A Yorkshire chef has joined forces with local care provider, Westward Care, to put the spotlight on nutrition.

Brian Turner attended the opening of the new Headingley Hall Apartment development in Leeds. Brian believes that not enough attention is paid to altering diet in later life.

Being less active, we need to reduce our energy intake; we need to eat to boost our immune systems; and we need to take into account the dietary demands of any medical conditions we may develop."
