Health & Welfare: Nutrition and hydration

Nutrition and Hydration Week takes place later this month (March 11-17), shining a spotlight on the importance of nutrition and hydration in health and social care.

Care caterers are encouraged to get involved in the week’s events and there are lots of resources available.

Other help and advice is available from suppliers:

Lakeland Dairies has been promoting the importance of nutrition through its
fortification campaign and has released a new recipe booklet containing 12 delicious dishes using Millac Gold Double with added vitamin D, to help them give menus a sunshine boost. For more information please visit www.pritchitts.com.
