Aged care homes in the last 12 months have faced major changes with the introduction of new Aged Care Standards, a Royal Commission highlighting challenges within the sector and increasing level of expectation from residents with consumer directed care.
The Aged Care Standards have a high emphasis on consumer choice.
Foodservice operations are critical in being able to deliver choice through menu planning and mealtimes.
When preparing meals for others, whether as a community meals provider or at Aged Care homes – food safety is a crucial factor for your operations. Food safety is continually evolving and it’s essential to keep updated and get insight into how the sector is performing.
We understand that every meal counts for Aged Care residents. Loss of appetite can lead to missed meals or smaller portions, making nourishment through high protein and energy meals/snacks even more vital. Foodservices play a key role in delivering nutrition and choice for Aged Care residents through effective menu planning practices.
We understand that often aged-care kitchens are plating up a whole dining room in a short period of time. Meal presentation is more than just putting food onto a plate.
This webinar will examine meal presentation, the science behind how to present meals and provide practical demonstration techniques and quick solutions.
We understand that School Canteens play an essential role in the developing nutrition knowledge of young people. Canteens, for many years, have operated using nutrition guidelines, and these guidelines have been developed to assist canteen operators in selecting foods and support food manufacturers to develop canteen products.
