High Calorie Snacks HANDOUT

High calorie foods are used to stop unintended weight loss. Anyone working with frail older adults knows how detrimental unintended weight loss can be.

Unintended Weight Loss is a Real Problem

With unintended weight loss comes loss of muscle. We need muscle to function. To get out of bed in the morning, get dressed, feed ourselves… we need muscles for independence.

Unintended weight loss… it’s a big deal. It robs older adults of their independence. It impacts their quality of life and increases the risk of death and disability.

You can help!

Adding high calorie foods into the diet of an older adult is KEY to stopping unintended weight loss.

This FREE High Calorie Snacks handout can help you educate your patient with easy high calorie snack ideas. It features colorful photos, portion sizes, and calorie estimates for each snack.

  • Really helpful, thank you!

    I work primarily with ED and DE adolescents, and needed a new handout to educate parents on how to serve more calorically dense foods to their child. This was perfect! The graphics make it super clear and easy for parents/families and any other clients who benefit from high calorie snacks to understand.

  • Healthy Snacks Handout

    Very nice, usable handout. I get underweight patients from time to time that will not eat unhealthy weight gain foods (butter, cream, cheese). I will check out your other info. Thank you!

  • Thrilled ❤

    I’ve been on Google for weeks researching high calorie diets and came across this site. I’m super excited to start this. I’m a type 1 diabetic for the last 23 years and struggle with maintaining a good solid weight. The snacks are very simple and something I’ll be able to make and carry to work with not issues!!!
    I’ll update in 4 weeks on the weight gain. I’m currently 44 yrs young, 146 lbs and I’m 5’9. 😀
