If you are over 65, go ahead and eat that mid-day snack.
The older we get, the less we eat.
A new study found, elderly who ate daily snacks consumed significantly more calories, protein and carbohydrates, than non-snackers.
While too much snacking can lead to weight problems in other age groups, researchers say it may help older adults get their recommended calories.
Compared to the typical 25-year-old, elderly men consume about 12 hundred fewer calories a day.
Women tend to eat 800 fewer calories.
