Purpose: To define changes in our food system and explore applicable ways to incorporate fresh and innovative ideas in your community. Ever wonder if there is anything else that can be done to improve a patient’s nutritional status? We need to move past the days of just adding an “Ensure” to trays. This program will leave you with new and exciting ideas for your resident’s diets. We will explore the food system and discover what may be missing from your current plan. Learn ways to bring excitement back to the table from a dietitian on the “front lines” of nutrition.
