Dietitians Health Pick of the Month – Peaches!
As part of our Enhanced Dining Services, our dietitian picks a different food each month to be incorporated into resident meals, and each facility provides a display to educate residents, family and staff.
This month is Peaches – Peaches can be added to many different recipes to give an additional nutritional boost – from smoothies to salads. Peaches are a wonderful fat free snack. A large peach has fewer than 70 calories and contains 3 grams of fiber as well as 10% of your daily Vitamin C. For more peach facts and some recipes click here>.
