Global Afternoon Tea
During Nutrition & Hydration Week people are encouraged to focus on the importance of food and drink by holding a tea party.Combining it with residents’ birthdays and other celebratory occasions makes it easy to extend the idea, and its many benefits, throughout the year.
Afternoon tea is a nostalgic way to offer a variety of savoury and sweet options between meals, or as a supper time snack. Hand-held foods like finger sandwiches and florentines allow self-feeding, giving independence to residents unable to use cutlery. It also permits varying portion sizes depending on appetite.
You can cater for different dietary needs by serving alternatives such as gluten-free polenta cake, ensuring residents are not left out and widening the variety of foods offered.
