Useful tips

What foods should 60 years old people eat?
When you get older, you are more likely to have health issues or other problems. To stay healthy as you age, you should do regular exercise and eat a healthy and balanced diet that gives you the nutrients that your body needs.

  1. Proteins to build and maintain muscles. Older adults should avoid meat with too much fat or skin. You should get protein from:
    • Fish. This is a source of good protein. It is easy to digest and has low fat.
    • Egg. You should eat an egg a day. Egg is very nutritional. If you have a high cholesterol level, eat only the egg white.
    • Milk. You should drink a glass of milk a day. It is rich in protein and calcium.
    • Dried beans. They are high in protein and can replace meat.
  2. Carbohydrates to give you energy. Older adults need only a small amount of carbohydrates. You should only take about two ladles of rice or starches. Avoid dessert.
  3. Minerals. You should eat several kinds of vegetables to help your digestion and bowel movements.
  4. Vitamins. You should eat fruits every day to get vitamin C and dietary fiber. Fruits with soft texture such as ripe papayas or bananas are ideal. Fruits with very sweet taste should be avoided.
  5. Fats. Although older adults need only a small amount of fat, it is still very important to eat the right amount of the right types of fats to stay healthy. It is recommended that you cook with soybean oil or sunflower oil because they are rich in unsaturated fats, especially linoleic acid which helps control cholesterol, reduce inflammation and protect against heart disease.
    Apart from eating a balanced diet, you should still exercise regularly and not excessively so as not to cause any injury. You should also drink 6-8 glasses of water daily to carry nutrients to your cells and improve skin complexion. You should avoid tea, coffee, and alcoholic drinks.

Product Story

Dr. Ong-ard
Nutritional foods for better health and better quality of life

History

Dr. Ong-ard’s health foods story was born in 2018 when a group of researchers led by Dr. Ong-ard Praepanichchai in the field of food innovation became alarmed at the growing number of unhealthy, unwell people in society. There are many factors responsible for this situation including unhealthy eating habits and lack of exercise. Also, as people live longer, many countries now find they have a larger “aging society”, which causes even more problems. The more elderly people there are results in the more patients being created, because many illnesses develop along with age.
As a way to alleviate these problems the 1A Food company was established. The objective was a simple one: to provide better health and better quality of life for older people and their family members by producing healthy, nutritious food under the brandname Dr. Ong-ard.

Key Partners
1A Food received support from the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) through its Innovation and Technology Assistance Program (ITAP).  NSTDA helped provide R&D experts to develop formulas for our soups and nutritional beverages.  The R&D experts identified by NSTDA were the Rajamangala University of Technology Phra Nakhon and CDIP (Thailand) Company.

Products
There are two product lines, namely:

  1. Soups such as chicken breast soup with chia seeds, salmon soup with chia seeds
  2. Powdered beverages that are specially created for the elderly, including those with kidney disease or diabetes

Both the soups and powdered beverages are easy to prepare and not only provide important nutritional value, but are delicious as well.  These are designed to nourish healthy wellbeing every day, as well as providing helpful recuperative nutrition when they are ill.  Apart from the elderly, Dr Ong-ard products are also of benefit to those middle age, who want to ensure they prepare themselves fully for a longer, healthier and more active older age.
