  1. Hello, I think your site is great and will be extremely helpful to seniors and those that care for them. I feel like the elderly rarely have a voice in this world and I think it is awesome that this website exists. I cant wait to see what other info you give us. One word of advice, can you make the font bolder or darker and a little bigger? These old eyes need all the help they can get on the computer. Thank you!

  2. A good article. I was wanting a few more details about each food group and how they can help seniors. It’s a good list, but I wanted a little more elaboration on the benefits of each food.
    It’s a topic I’m interested in, and wanted more.
    I like the focus and think it can be a helpful topic on which to write.

    1. Thank You

  3. Hello, and thank you for the insight and information into older adults nutritional needs. I believe this is an overlooked issue for most due to people thinking that older adults do not eat that much and their bodies are going to change much even with proper nutrients.
    I also appreciate the list of dietary ideas for seniors need to stay healthy.
    Great information

    1. Thank You

      Many seniors are not healthy enough to care for themselves, so hopefully their caregivers are

      researching to learn how to best care for their elderly.
