We all eat with our eyes, so it is important to ensure that food always looks appetising and is attractively presented, improving meal
presentation with colour and contrast on the plate for all residents regardless of their conditions so that nobody is isolated or treated differently.
For residents on a pureed diet, particularly, presentation is as fundamental as the dish itself. It is common for people with a dementia to refuse to eat what they cannot recognise.
The use of food moulds is becoming increasingly popular to recreate the original shapes of pureed foods as family members and care caterers understand the key benefits.
