An Afternoon with Wiltshire Farm Foods at Disabled Living
On Friday 20 May 2017, our team over at Burrows House enjoyed a dinner by Wiltshire Farm Foods. To begin the event, we were provided with texture modified foods and information about specifications, swallowing precautions, and the different types of purée food. With the purée food in particular, we didn’t really know if it would be so appetising.
However, the presentation of the food was surprisingly nice, and the taste was tastier than expected.

There were a range of dishes to choose from where different volumes of calories can be chosen. For example, there is a choice of mini meals for the evening and large meals for lunch for those who need a certain calorie intake to support their diet. With each mouthful, there’s a big concentration on taste for the Wiltshire Farm Food’s customers.
As each customer has different needs and requirements, it’s important to cater for all. For those with food allergies, Wiltshire Farm Foods like to make the meals more vibrant so it can look more appealing for the customer. Also, they have a ‘Nutritious and Delicious’ option where the meals contain less than 400 calories. Alongside this, is the option of foods which include low fat, low salt, and gluten free.
Meals with vitamin D and calcium help to keep customer’s bones strong and help to prevent any bone conditions from worsening. Not everybody likes the vitamin chewy option; however, it is important that those who need it do consume it.
Likewise with the purée food, a person with excellent health can take one look at the food and think it doesn’t look too delicious, but when you think about it from the perspective of a person who has this as their only option for food intake, you realise just how important food is to them in order to keep them healthy.
