Hide caption In honor of National Nutrition Month, Meghan Ostrander, nutrition director at Springwell, will present “Fad Diets — Pros and Cons” at 11:45 a.m. March 21, at the Newton Senior Center, 345 Walnut St., Newton.
Ostrander, a registered dietician, has found that seniors have many questions about how their food choices can help them maintain or improve their overall health as they age. “Individuals are inundated with ever changing recommendations about Keto diets, low fat diets, plant based diets, Paleo diets and more,” said Ostrander. “While there is no one correct answer, my program will succinctly lay out claims, as well as potential benefits and risks, of many popular diets.”
In addition to nutrition needs, community dining is an opportunity for seniors to make new social connections and reconnect with local friends and acquaintances.
To make a reservation: 617-796-1660. Meals available to individuals 60 years of age older, who may also bring a spouse or dependent with a disability of any age. Cost: $2 suggested donation. Those who make a reservation and need to cancel, should call by 11 a.m. the business day before the lunch.
Springwell, in coordination with the Senior Center, serves lunch at 11:45 a.m. Monday-Friday to anyone in the community age 60 or older. For information: http://springwell.com .
