With a 30% greater risk among those over the age of 65 of being malnourished, it is extremely important for those working in care to be educated around malnutrition. So, as part of our contribution to Nutrition & Hydration Week 14th – 20th June 2021, every day next week apetito will be releasing bitesize podcasts, on a different aspect of malnutrition, hosted by our in-house Dietitian, Emily Stuart. Each podcast will be uploaded daily to our LinkedIn and can be found here:

Here is the line-up of what each day has to offer to give you a taste of our dedicated podcast series:

Monday: The warning signs of malnutrition with guest, Grace Allmark

Tuesday: The impacts of eating Texture Modified Meals and their importance for recovery with Kate Allatt

Wednesday: Hidden hydration in food

Thursday: The importance of plate presentation

Friday: Importance of the dining experience and socialisation 
Each podcast will provide easy to digest information on a different aspect of malnutrition, with the aim of raising awareness and educating listeners.
