The importance of a healthy diet has been highlighted by Royal Star & Garter during Nutrition and Hydration Week.

Residents at the charity’s three Homes took part in cooking activities, taste tests and tucked into yummy foods and snacks and drinks as part of Nutrition & Hydration Week, which took place between Monday 11th and Sunday 17th March 2024.

Among the activities which took place in the High Wycombe home was a taste test with veterans sampling exotic foods and fruits from around the world, including sushi, rambutan, yellow pitahaya (dragon fruit), physalis, tamarillo and papaya.

Shirley Hall, Director of Care and Wellbeing at Royal Star & Garter, said: ‘A good diet and hydration are crucial in supporting the health of people. It can strengthen the immune system, prevent disease, improve brain health and cognitive functions and boost energy levels. It is an important part of our care, and I’m glad to see events like Nutrition & Hydration Week highlighting this.

Royal Star & Garter provides loving, compassionate care to veterans and their partners living with disability or dementia, from Homes in Solihull, Surbiton and High Wycombe. The charity has also launched new services reaching out into the community.
