Free menu-planning website for care homes: Initiative praised by Older People's Commissioner

Praise for menu-planning website

A new menu-planning website has been launched to help nursing and residential care providers improve the quality and nutritional value of meals they provide – and to ensure they meet or exceed required standards.

The initiative is being backed by Sarah Rochira who attended the launch in Cwmbran on December 4. The free resource, a joint venture between Torfaen Council and Aneurin Bevan Health Board offers:

  • menu planning for up to four weeks ahead
  • recipes including some fortified options (over 350)
  • recipes with pictures for use in homes where residents use pictorial recognition (useful for dementia residents)
  • valuable advice on changing allergen labelling (relevant from Dec 13, 2014)
