At the forefront of Dementia Dining: apetito launches innovative IDDSI Level 4 dishes

Always looking to expand its award-winning texture-modified range, leading Care Homes meals provider, apetito, has been busy developing its IDDSI Level 4 meals range. It is introducing five brand new, innovative dishes to give residents with dysphagia more choice and variety when it comes to mealtimes.

Not only do all these dishes taste delicious but they have been developed with nutritional content at the forefront of their inhouse chefs’ and dietitians’ minds.

The new Chicken in Rich Gravy, Lamb in Mint Gravy and Chicken and Vegetable Casserole dishes have been specially developed following feedback from apetito’s Care Home customers. They are the popular puree petite size and include a tasty sauce, which not only brings the dish together but provides greater nutrient density and flavour profile.

apetito is also introducing two of the nation’s favourite comfort foods to its range, which will be instantly recognisable to patients. Its Sausages, Beans and Chips dish with two browned components, has a real ‘fresh out of the oven’ effect. The Spaghetti Bolognaise is apetito’s best-ever Level 4 pasta dish and is a world leading texture-modified dish, with patients able to see individual spaghetti pieces and taste authentic, comforting bolognaise sauce.

Speaking for apetito, Richard Woodward, general manager of apetito’s Care Home Division says: 

“Everyone deserves to enjoy nutritious, delicious food and residents living with dysphagia are no exception.

“That is why we’re always working to produce new IDDSI dishes that are at the forefront of innovation. Our specialist nutrition team has put in so much time, determination, and effort to ensure that these Level 4 dishes are nutritious and taste delicious.”

These new and market leading dishes demonstrate apetito’s dedication to ensuring residents with dysphagia can enjoy a real variety of food, whilst Care Home teams can relax in the knowledge that they are safe for residents to eat.
