If you've ever cooked regularly for an older person, you know that it can be challenging. Their senses of taste and smell may dull, and with that comes weight loss. Studies show that in older age, that loss of weight can lead to insufficient nourishment, reduced ability to battle diseases and even problems with healing from small cuts.
