Question: My mother only eats pasta and I can't get her out of the house, she doesn't do any exercise. How can I help her? Javier (Coslada).
Answer: It is important that you explain to your mother the importance of eating a varied and balanced diet. You can take pasta 2 or 3 times a week and the rest of the days alternate it with other dishes rich in carbohydrates such as rice, legumes, stew with potatoes combined with some meat, fish or egg, not forgetting the vegetables (2 servings a day) and fruit (3 pieces a day).
