Exotic fruit kebabs prove to be a taste sensation
As part of the OSJCT ‘Beat the January Blues’ campaign, the residents of St Wilfrid’s Priory Care Home are enjoying food-tasting experiences, to stimulate the mind and taste buds.
This week the residents tried exotic fruits, such as mango, papaya, persimmon, passion fruit, physalis (cape gooseberry) and lychees. Combined with ‘normal’ fruit on the menu, including pineapple, blueberries, cherries, kiwi fruit and oranges, the residents created tasty fruit kebabs, which they relished with some chocolate sauce.
Home Manager, Rachael Staker, commented “Not only is this a great sensory experience for our residents, but it has the additional benefit of being excellent hydration. We are certainly 'Beating the January Blues' with these taste tests, and they are all excited to know what is next!”.
The residents agreed this was a great alternative to cake for afternoon tea, and as the menu at St Wilfrid’s Priory Care Home is resident-led, we are delighted to add fruit kebabs as a regular option.
