The food guide called “MyPyramid,” is considered the gold standard of nutrition for people of all ages. This was discussed extensively in a previous issue of this column. With its emphasis on high-fiber, low-fat foods, MyPyramid promotes optimal nutrition for everyone. But adults over 70 have unique nutritional needs not met by the 2005 MyPyramid, according to experts. In particular, they may not be getting enough nutrition for their caloric intake, according to the Modified MyPyramid for Older Adults published in a recent issue of the Journal of Nutrition, which stresses the importance of “nutrient-dense” foods in the over-70 population.
