Description

This short course will provide the knowledge to support nutritious, innovative methods of food service to our ageing community.

With a hands on approach you will learn from a current chef/ dietary coordinator in the aged care industry practical methods of food presentation and how to provide optimum nutrition.
The course will develop your skills and knowledge in the selection and planning of balanced meals, general menu planning principles and the development, modification and evaluation of menus within dietary guidelines.

We will explore the special nutritional and dietary needs of a number of different client groups, including at risk and cultural groups and assess both meals and menus for their suitability for texture modification, using relevant guidelines.
