Food and drink should meet people's individual dietary needs (outcome 5)

Meeting this standard

We checked that people who use this service

  • Are supported to have adequate nutrition and hydration.

How this check was done

Our judgement

The provider was meeting the standard. People were provided with a choice of suitable and nutritious food and drink.

User experience

None of the people we spoke with had any complaints about the food. One person said; “We have a choice and the food is very, very nice.” Another said; “Food ok with me.”

Other evidence

We looked at the menu's which rotated over a four week period. They showed a varied menu which offered choices at both the main meal and the tea time meal.

We spoke with the head chef who said that there were no problems about the budget for purchasing food. He also said that if no one liked any of the choices something else would always be offered.

Both the head chef and the kitchen assistant we spoke with had received food hygiene training which was up to date. The kitchen assistant was currently completing a National Vocational Qualification (NVQ) level 2 Diploma in Professional Cooking.

We also saw in the care files nutritional screening records that would show those people who may be at risk from eating a poor diet.
