Meal ideas for elderly father in law

shecrab | Sep 15, 2016 10:28 AM

Hello everyone!
My 93 year old father in law will be arriving to stay with us indefinitely. He is very lucid and mobile with no allergies, few dislikes, and no health problems. I have looked and found little recent activity on related threads so I'm asking for help from you kind souls. He mostly eats out and is pretty underweight. I plan on changing both of those things and will be his cook and companion while my husband is at work. His current diet is terrible, and he only drinks coffee in the morning. No other liquid passes his lips. Oh, and he smokes like a fiend. I have compiled a pretty lengthy list of meals and snacks but would love some of your thoughts as well. He wears dentures, but probably won't every day. His ethnicity is Eastern European but he eats almost everything. Thank you so much!
