  • Eating frequent and small meals, including foods that are easy to prepare and high in calories and protein.
  • Avoiding drinks that aren’t very nutritious.
  • Making meals fun by including favorite foods and using bright, colorful dishes.
  • Enjoying some company while you eat, by going to a restaurant or having a dinner guest.
