Fact or fiction – Healthy eating can help your hearing? Fact! A healthy diet helps blood flow and strengthens the brain, both of which help to keep your hearing healthy.
As we age, it can become more difficult to think of healthy snacks or treats that you enjoy. It’s because your tastes change over time. Also, with age your rules for how you should be eating tend to become more lax. Another fact to consider is that as you age your body will retain less fat. It is recommended that you talk to your doctor about your diet and how often you can give in to your sweet tooth cravings.
If you want to feed your sweet tooth while still getting some good nutritional value, here are some things you can try:
- Yogurt with fruit
- Fruit Smoothies
- Pudding cups
- String cheese sticks
- Oatmeal cookies
- Nuts or trail mix

Make sure to talk to your doctor about any nutrition concerns you may have. Don’t forget good eating really can help with your hearing health. If you have been struggling to stay part of the conversation due to hearing loss, be sure to eat healthy and get an appointment to see a hearing care professional.
