This webinar will benefit those working with food and nutrition in long-term care (LTC): menu planners, cooks, dietitians. It will be presented by Heather Keller, Schlegel Research Chair in Nutrition & Aging at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging. Her acute care program of research is focused on improving food quality and nutrition care processes to prevent, detect and treat malnutrition. Participants will learn how to not only create healthy meals, but healthy meals that older adults will enjoy!
-Identify key micronutrients that are often missing in the diets of residents living in LTC and highlight key ingredients that can be added to recipes in dishes most appropriate for the LTC population.
-Explain and show the process for changing menus and recipes to maximize nutrition while considering cost of ingredients.
-Understand how to try NiD recipes by conducting a taste-testing event with residents in your home.
