365 Practical Ways to Feel Better and Live Longer

Studies show that some older adults are deficient in vitamins B6, B12, and folate (a B vitamin). To guard against vitamin deficiencies, plan a diet that includes food sources of these nutrients.

Whole-grain breads and cereals, as well as organ meats and fish, are high in B6.
Milk, eggs, and meat are excellent sources of B12
Carrots, broccoli, and almost all green, leafy vegetables are high in folate.
Citrus fruits, tomatoes, cantaloupe, and strawberries are rich in vitamin C.

Studies also suggest that older adults require more protein and calcium in their daily diets than many people consume. Low-fat dairy products are rich sources of calcium. Two servings a day of 2 to 3 ounces of meat, chicken, or fish provide the protein you need. Other, less concentrated sources of protein include cooked dried beans, peanut butter, nuts, and eggs. (For more details on the nutrient content of foods, see chapter 4, Eating for Better Health.)
