Meal Plans for Older People - A Manual

NPA has developed a series of one day meal plans that provide a summary outline for each of the various special diets that are likely to be encountered in aged care.

Many of these special diets eg diabetic and texture modified 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 facility meets best practice and accreditation guidelines.
