Leading care homes meals provider, apetito, has launched its ‘best ever’ Christmas range as part of its innovative ‘Culinary Inspirations’ series.

New dishes include a Wild Salmon and Spinach Crumble, a Vegan Root Vegetable Pie, a Puréed Turkey with Stuffing, and a Puréed Festive Sponge  Developed by apetito’s in house Chefs and Dietitians, the new range has been created to ensure all residents can enjoy a special Christmas meal, and includes festive additions to the company’s award-winning texture modified range alongside new main meals, sides, and desserts.

Neil Hargreaves, apetito Divisional Manager – Care Homes, said:  “Following a review of our existing Christmas range and taking on board feedback from customers, we wanted to include meals which reflected the diverse dietary needs of residents – whether that be a plant-based diet or for those requiring softer meal options.

In recent months, food has taken on an even more important role, being one of life’s simple pleasures that residents can look forward to and enjoy. Catering for those with bespoke dietary requirements does not need to be restrictive and all residents should be equally included on all occasions – something that is never more important than at Christmas. We hope the additions to our festive range enable care homes to create an exciting Christmas menu which will truly bring joy to residents this holiday season.”

As a leading supplier of meals to the care sector, apetito works in partnership with care homes to serve great tasting, nutritious food whilst delivering real cost savings, supporting the best dining experience, and meeting diverse dietary needs.
