Eating Well with a Limited Income
Mary is a 35-year-old female present in your office due to poor dentation and obesity. She has been basically living on mashed potatoes, juice, eggs, cheese, and meatloaf for the past 2 months due to her poor dentation. She only eats 2 meals a day because she dislikes breakfast.
