Older adult increases vegetable intake

A client who attends the Happy Hearts Senior Center shared he didn’t eat many vegetables in the winter, due to the increased cost of fresh versions and his need to avoid canned versions due to the salt content. SNAP-Ed staff encouraged him to try frozen vegetables, as they are lower in salt. In the next session, he shared he had tried frozen vegetables and they have made a difference in his diet. “I am eating vegetables all through the winter months now, what a difference!” he stated.
