One of the issues with textured modified meals is the amount of mashed potato residents eat. If mashed potato is used twice a day for lunch and the evening meal, then a resident on a vitamised/puree meal will have mashed potato 730 times a year.
That’s a lot of mashed potato.
If we all stopped and thought about that, no one enjoys eating the same foods everyday. However, we should try and make mashed potato interesting and varied on the menu.
To inspire creative mashed potato menu planning the NAC GH Resource and Recipe centre has a mashed potato resource: 28+ ways mashed potato can be used in meal and menu planning found in the Menu Planning Centre.
