The original snack for low appetites

Senior Wellbeing

Here at Grandbar Snacks we provide unique high calorie delicious, nutritious and easy to eat snack bars for the elderly. We are passionate about the wellbeing of our senior generation. Our range of bars have a wide selection of natural ingredients to support elderly people by helping improve their dietary requirements. Nothing beats whole foods to improve condition and overall health in anyone.

Our snacks are created primarily for the elderly.  This is because low appetite and weight gain have been overlooked so far. The vast majority of bars in the shops are targeted at gym goers, weight loss or kids. Choose Grandbars for a natural snack that contributes to health and wellbeing.

Our Grand Plan

Our snacks are part of our plan to improve the wellbeing of the elderly.  We want to help carers and families who support people with low appetites.  We need to bring down the figures of malnutrition in the senior generation. Our aim is to publicise the problems and provide advice, recipes and new products.

Our Grand Plan will involve pairing up with charities, health services and other initiatives to highlight and fix the problems of malnutrition in the elderly in this country in the 21st Century.

We will be very involved in the UK Malnutrition Awareness Week 2022 which is between 10th and 16th October 2022. UKMAW is now in its 5th year. This was founded by the Malnutrition Task Force (MTF)

with the aim of raising awareness and understanding of the risks of preventable malnutrition across different sectors and settings.

Grandbar Snacks will be writing blogs and adding to our website with recipes and ideas about how to help older people eat. As our business grows so will our range of snacks and nutritional foods.

Natural Nutrition Bars

All our nutrition bars are made with natural ingredients including flaxseed, gluten-free oats, almond butter, walnuts, coconut oil, honey, apricots, and prunes. Ingredients that mix perfectly to support a healthy diet. These contain a range of vitamins and minerals that have many benefits to an elderly person’s overall wellbeing: –

  • Iron: produces haemoglobin, prevents anemia, and increases energy.
  • Calcium: helps build and maintain healthy bones, also lowers blood pressure.
  • Vitamin D: aids the absorption of calcium. May also protect against MS, Type 2 Diabetes, Cancer and Osteoporosis.
  • Magnesium: keeps the heart and immune system healthy and your bones strong.
  • Potassium: aids in cell function, reduces blood pressure and may reduce risk of kidney stones.
  • Vitamin B12: maintains nerve function, produces red blood cells and DNA.

Why are low appetites common in the elderly?

Our appetite naturally declines with our activity level, but the body still needs good nutrition to keep going and repair itself. Low appetites can also be caused by environmental issues, living alone, bereavement, loneliness and depression. All common in old age. Sometimes elderly people don’t have the energy to cook a ‘proper’ meal.

Our perception of taste and texture of food can change and make meals we used to enjoy become unpleasant. Also if an elderly person is in a situation where they can’t control the menu in hospital, a care home or hospice, the food may not be what they want to eat or be available when they are hungry.

Not eating enough can become a habit and losing weight for the elderly can have many disastrous medical consequences.

    Just wanted to say thank you to Grandbar Snacks for making a tasty healthy snackbar that my mum could enjoy. Mum was diagnosed with early stages of dementia and Motor Neurones Disease and had great difficulty swallowing. With these bars we were able to cut them into bite size pieces and mum could suck on them and was able to enjoy them without choking. Such a huge blessing. A tasty nutritional snack that mum enjoyed and could eat without discomfort. My dad and I also enjoyed them! Thank you x

Both really enjoyed the taste of both bars and I cut my mum’s Into bite size pieces and she managed to eat them comfortably. I had a taster too and they are both delicious!
