Last week our residents and staff joined in to mark Nutrition and Hydration Week here at The Old Downs Residential Care Home.
We started the week with delicious mocktails – Pina Coladas, Virgin Mimosas and Shirley Temples!
On Tuesday, our residents enjoyed a ‘Taste and Smell’ decision game when they tried different foods blindfolded and had to guess them. Great fun and a good way to stimulate the senses.
We held our own ‘Fruity Tea Party’ on Wednesday afternoon with a buffet of chicken goujons with pineapple chutney, Hawaiian pizza, mini croutons with burgers served with banana and tomato sauce and dolce gelato sponge and coconut bread pudding. What a feast! We also had on offer a variety of fruit teas to try.
Our exotic fruit tasting session with fruit smoothies was a big success on Fruity Friday and to finish the week on Saturday afternoon, our residents loved their chocolate brownie fruit and nut sundaes.
What a fantastic week of tastes and flavours – Bon appetite!
