Fasting the elderly
Dr. Walaa gave some food tips to the elderly to fast during the month of Ramadan:
1 – Eat foods full of nutrients from protein, vitamins, fats, starches and others at the breakfast table in Ramadan.
2 – Breakfast in Ramadan must contain a source of protein, such as animal protein, such as meat of various types or plant protein, such as cowpea, beans and other nutrients.
3 – For the meal of Suhour should contain foods rich in protein, such as: milk, low-fat cheese, eggs or legumes such as beans and lentils in addition to other nutrients.
4 – Small meals should be taken during the period between breakfast and suhour to provide the body with the nutrients that are missing all day, and eating small meals at intervals.
5 – Eat fresh vegetables and fruits beside breakfast and Suhur, because they contain fibers that facilitate digestion.
6 – Drink water and fluids frequently during the period between breakfast and Suhur to moisturize the body constantly.
7 – Stay away from drinking coffee and tea, especially before the suhoor, because they produce urine, so as not to affect the desire to enter the toilet, which affects the hours of sleep.
