Snack Inspiration For Your Residents

7th April 2021

As we get older, our appetite changes. Smaller appetites and lower food intake in older people is not uncommon. You’ll notice that some residents may feel overwhelmed with larger plates of food. Offering smaller amounts of food, more often, is sometimes the best option to meet individual meal requirements and to ensure good nutrition is maintained. Our team of chefs have put together a number of tasty mid-morning snack ideas for you to try.

Smoothies are a great and simple way to get a lot of fruit and vegetables with all the associated vitamins and minerals into a diet. They can also be thickened easily with Nutrisis Thickener to the required IDDSI level. Simply add the powder when blending, little by little, until the desired consistency is reached.

Have fun experimenting with your own combinations using whatever fruit and vegetables you have available!
