Meal Preparation for Seniors

What is Meal Preparation?

Meal preparation is the process of preparing many meals in advance as opposed to cooking right away. You prepare all the ingredients for a week’s worth of meals on the same day, which is when meal preparation often takes place. In this manner, meals are prepared in large quantities and divided into little servings for every day of the week.

Meal preparation for seniors can save time and money while staying organized and reaching dietary health goals. Meal prepping is the perfect solution for seniors looking to save time and enjoy healthy meals throughout the week.
