A Benchtop Guide for Nutrition Care and Therapeutic Diets

NPA is very excited to announce the re- release of our old Special Diets Meal Plans book. We have developed a far more comprehensive benchtop guide to nutrition care and therapeutic or special diets when catering for older people.

MEAL PLAS FOR OLDER PEOPLE provides a summary of nutrition for an older person, some information regarding menu planning as well as a meal plan for each of the various special diets that are likely to be encountered.

Many of these special diets eg diabetic and texture modified diets are routinely provided from the main menu, but others will need to be catered for on an individual basis. The meal plans provide a simple and practical guide that can be readily referred to at the time of serving meals.

Also included in this manual is information regarding standard serve sizes and a standard menu structure to ensure that residents are provided with ample opportunities to choose foods from each of the core food groups and to ensure that the organisation meets Best Practice and/ or Accreditation Guidelines.

Available for only $99.00!
