Cardiff and Vale University Health Board will be launching exciting new menus for inpatients on Monday 12 February 2018.
The new two-week menu provides patients with an increased variety of meals, and introduces some new recipes, as well as some family favourites.
There will be tailored menus specifically for the Children’s Hospital and the Women’s Unit.
There will also be a separate A La Carte menu that will provide increased choices for patients with very specialist diets, including Halal and Kosher suitable meals, gluten-free and allergen-free meals, as well as an increased choice of vegetarian and vegan meals.
As part of the launch, menus will be displayed as posters as well as internet links for patients and staff to view.
The funding for the brightly coloured crockery for use throughout the Health Board was kindly provided by the Cardiff & Vale Health Charity. All sites across the Health Board will have the new blue two tone crockery by April 2018. The Noah’s Ark Children’s Hospital of Wales has blue and yellow crockery.
The brightly coloured crockery will enable an improved eating experience for all patients and positively supports the Health Board’s commitment to improving the nutrition and hydration of its patients.
