Nestlé Docello Protein Enriched Dessert Mix helps support nutritious goals for aged care residents
Communal living also brings with it the requirement to eat from a set menu – often for the first time in their adult life. That creates a challenge for aged care facilities to ensure meals are tasty, tempting and nutritious. It also presents an opportunity to increase their sense of security through foods that are familiar.
Desserts, by their very nature, can evoke a feeling of comfort, as well as turn an everyday meal into a special occasion. For aged care providers who delight in not just getting it right, but going above and beyond to provide the best possible lifestyle for patients and residents, showstopper desserts that are also nutritious are a great way to achieve these goals.
It’s a fine line to walk, especially when there can be dozens of diverse appetites and health needs to consider. Research shows people aged over 70 are less likely to meet their protein needs – a serious concern when meeting these needs is vital for supporting the preservation of muscle mass and the benefits this brings to strength, mobility and general health.
That’s where providing tasty, protein-enriched desserts using Nestlé Docello Protein Enriched Dessert Mix can support the nutritional goals for your residents.
The range, which includes butterscotch, lemon and strawberry flavours, meet dessert menu standards providing a vital source of protein and calcium in every serve when prepared with full cream milk as directed.
