The festive season is here. It is party time and the food is celebratory and abundant. As a counterpoint, we could consider the levels of nutrition experienced by frail aged people right across the community.
Meals are markers of the day for all of us – but they are especially so for those who have limited mobility or who are confined to the lonely room of an aged-care facility and for those who might be isolated within their suburban home. It is sad then, when the food disappoints and/or has little nutritional value.
