Menu assessments for aged care facilities

Our menu assessment services help ensure the meals provided at your care facility are nutritionally balanced, offer variety and support food enjoyment for residents.

Meeting nutritional needs is important to optimise both physical and mental health, and improve quality of life for older adults.

Nutrition Australia can assess your facility menu for variety and nutritional adequacy, in accordance with the Australian Dietary Guidelines and Commonwealth Accreditation Standards for aged care facilities.

The assessments are conducted by an Accredited Practising Dietitian using a typical four week menu. A comprehensive report will be provided including the results of the analysis, areas of compliance and recommendations for improving the nutritional quality of your menu.
