Eat healthy foods


Eating regular well-balanced meals with lots of fruits and vegetables is vital to staying healthy. Good nutrition helps reduce risk and manage diseases such as heart disease, some types of cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis.

Many community resources help people with disabilities and older adults eat healthy food. They also provide information about nutrition and aging. Some community programs include:

  • Group and home-delivered meal programs
  • Community gardens
  • Farmers’ markets
  • Food banks and food gleaning programs
  • Nutrition education programs offered at senior centers
  • Online courses, publications, recipes and expert advice  are available through Washington State University Extension Nutrition Services
