Wellbeing vital to care home menus after pandemic

Care home catering could take a new twist over the next few months as residents look for interesting menus to boost their wellbeing.

Food procurement company Allmanhall said wellbeing and mindfulness must be considerations when planning meals after a difficult year for residents.

“A continuing focus on enjoying food and eating for health is expected in catering menus,” said procurement manager Alastair Cupper. “We expect to see more use of immunity-supporting ingredients. This includes superfoods and probiotics, plus low sugar and gluten and dairy alternatives.”
