Food Glorious Food
Nutrition and Hydration week is an annual event within the health and social care calendar, with the aim of promoting and reinforcing the benefits of maintaining a healthy, balanced diet. Within Venturi Healthcare, we thought this amazing initiative was the perfect excuse to utilise our catering teams skills and expertise to cook up some delicious snacks, meals and treats for our residents! It was fabulous to see many of our residents getting involved with the cooking and baking, whilst sipping on healthy smoothies and mocktails.
Studies suggest a healthy, balanced diet with a variety of foods including fresh vegetables, fruit, whole grains and fish have been found to support a persons overall health and wellbeing. Good nutrition and hydration can help towards wound healing, reducing the side effects of Dementia and enhancing overall health.
Thank you to the Venturi Teams for your hard work promoting this important initiative!
