Nutritional Care Planning

Each client will be different – many have chronic illnesses that will benefit from diet and nutrition management

The food we eat must be safe and prevent harmful bacteria that can spread very easily causing food poisoning. Food poisoning is extremely common also food poisoning causes thousands of reported cases each year.

Effective food hygiene includes hand washing, cooking and storing food properly and the prevention of cross-contamination.
