Nutrition and Hydration week with smoothies!

At our Four Season Care Homes, Magic Moment Coordinators teamed up with our chefs to part take in Nutrition and Hydration week. Residents sampled smoothie recipes, learnt the importance of staying hydrated and made their very own smoothies!

At Alexandra Care Home residents took part in a taste test, they were given a number of smoothies and had to guess which fruits and vegetables were used to make them. After the taste test, residents were tasked to make their own smoothie using the first three ingredients they guessed correctly. Everyone had a lovely afternoon blitzing fruits in the blender and sipping on smoothies!

It was game time at Hillside Lodge Care Home as residents teamed up for a smoothie making competition. Residents followed recipe cards and created many different flavours of smoothies including Peach Melba, banana and peanut butter, mixed berry and kiwi and mango. The winning smoothie was… banana and peanut butter!

Peanut butter was also a very popular smoothie flavour at Evedale Care Home where residents worked together to make smoothies for the staff as they wanted to make sure they were keeping hydrated with a healthy and filling drink. Residents learnt the importance of a balanced diet and how fortification can be used to help individuals struggling to maintain a healthy body weight. 

Residents loved the smoothies and will be able to enjoy them as an alternative option to their teas and coffees!
