How to stay healthy with no fuss

The heart foundation recommends for best nutrition:

 - Eat plenty of vegetables, legumes and fruits

 - Eat plenty of cereals (including breads, rice, pasta and noodles), preferably wholegrain

 - Include lean meat, fish, poultry and/or alternatives

 - Include milks, yoghurts, cheeses and/or alternatives. Reduced-fat varieties should be chosen, where possible, drink plenty of water

If you'd like to be provided with cooked meals contact:

COA - http://www.coasydney.org/kmow.html -  they provide Kosher meals to people that are unable to cook for themselves, this includes elderly frail people, disabled and accident victims, they provide a cheaper rate for pensioners.

JewishCare also offers a meal preparation service available to over 65’s with a valid ACAT assessment. Three meals can be prepared to store in the fridge, provided by  a Home Support care worker-  contact r.faludi@jewishcare.com.au






Shopping for FoodIf you are living on your own and are not always able to make it to the supermarket, it is a good idea to have your cupboard well-stocked with foods that can keep for a while without going stale. Such foods may include:

•Canned fruit and canned and UHT fruit juice
•Canned vegetables
•Baked beans and bean mixes
•Rice, spaghetti, macaroni, flour, rolled oats and breakfast cereals
•Canned, powdered and UHT milk and custard
•Canned meat and fish
•Canned soups
•Sauces (such as soy sauce) and pastes (such as peanut paste)
•Vegetable oil
