Try to start the day the healthy way. A range of fruits brings more benefits. For older men and women, omega-3 fatty acids should be a dietary priority. Good health • Opt for healthy or saturated fats such as those derived from canola, sunflower and olive oils. • Choose reduced fat or skim milk dairy products or calcium- enriched equivalents such as soy milk. • Include oily fish, rich in Omega-3, in your diet. • Choose wholegrain over refined cereal and breads. THE middle-aged spread is an inevitable part of grow- ing older, right? Wrong. Although the body's meta- bolic function starts to slow beyond the age of about 40, the decrease is not as significant as some people might think. So the secret to a long, healthy life isn't so much about eating less as being savvy about the choices made along the way. Dietitian and senior manager of food supply at The Heart Foundation, Barbara Eden, says although indi- vidual energy requirements decrease with age, the reduction is not dramat- ic. In the 50 to 70-year-old age group, for example, the decrease is about 300 kilojoules a day --- equivalent to a piece of fruit, a half a cup of milk or a slice of bread. Eden says although monitoring portion control is important, rather than obsessing over how much to eat, choosing foods with less saturated fat -- such as using margarine spreads containing olive, canola or sunflower oil -- can pay dividends to health. In addition to making informed choices over what foods to limit or avoid, there are certain things people over 50 should make sure they don't leave off their weekly shopping list. Eden says three to four servings of dairy, or calcium- enriched soy products, a day -- particularly for post- menopausal women, along with get- ting enough vitamin D, is vital for strong bones and maintaining better long-term mobility. "It's particularly important for women to make adjustments to eating behaviour after the hormonal changes during or post menopause," she says. But the onus on dairy is not a free for all to go wild on ice-cream and custard. Avoiding foods with high levels of saturated fat and opting for things such as skim or reduced fat milk, yogurt and cheeses will help avoid bone diseases like osteoporosis yet not increase the risks in other areas. For older men and women, getting enough omega-3 fatty acids should be another dietary priority. Omega-3 is found in oily fish such as salmon, sardines and tuna and the recommen- ded amount of two to three servings a week has been proven to help inhibit the onset of heart disease along with improving cognitive function and bet- ter mental health. And despite hype around antioxidant-rich foods such as blue- berries, strawberries and cranber- ries, Eden says there is no one-stop wonder or anti-ageing food. Rather, the best way to ward off ill health is to embrace a good range of fruits and vegetables -- each has its own benefits. For over-50s with a sweet tooth, it's worth thinking about having strict guidelines around at-home treat stashes, too. "It's OK to have a treat -- just not every day," says Eden.
