27/03/2019 - 06:00
Foodservice wholesaler, Bidfood, has launched a new guide to help care caterers with the ‘fundamentals’ of meal planning, explaining the Care Quality Commission (CQC) requirements and offering a ‘wealth’ of recipe ideas and inspiration.

Designed by industry ‘specialists’, the handbook tackles a variety of challenges, from boosting calorie intake for malnourished residents with fortified desserts and dairy products, to catering for those with Dementia, and specific allergy and dietary requirements including Dysphagia.  

Vicky Mogford, marketing manager at Bidfood, said: “There are a number of challenges facing care caterers, from adhering to the CQC guidelines, to having limited time and resources in the kitchen.

“This handbook helps chefs and care home professionals to overcome these potential barriers, inspiring them to create fun and engaging dining experiences. Food is about so much more than just re-fuelling and dining should continue to be an enjoyable experience throughout our lives.”

The handbook includes ideas such as getting residents involved in cupcake decorating, introducing a hydration station or celebrating special occasions with afternoon tea, making mealtimes even more memorable.

The guide can be downloaded from the Bidfood website: https://www.bidfood.co.uk/care-homes/
