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.
