Summer Nutrition

To beat the summer heat Pana Hospital's Live Well program has partnered with the University of Illinois Extension office to bring back the "eating well as you age" class. Lisa Petterson appeared on the WTIM Morning Show to talk about the events to look forward to, health plans for the summer and how to survive the summer heat with nutrition.


There are many nutritional facts to be aware of during old age, especially as temperatures rise. Lisa Petterson explains how to get ahead of the issue through diet.


Hydration is key for summertime health. There are facts on water consumption that are important but many may not be aware of the changing amounts of water they might need. Petterson explains.


If you are feeling tired throughout the day, Lisa Petterson recommends that carrying a reusable water bottle through the day's events will keep one hydrated and alert. Kidney function and digestive health decline with age, hitting your water goals will keep the body functioning.
