The autumn and winter months are a busy time for anyone in the care sector and it is important that all residents have a chance to enjoy warming, nutritious food at every mealtime.
Mary Wedge, our Business Development Manager comments: “In our experience, many of the residents look forward to the desserts. They often represent familiar comfort foods and, even if they cannot face the main course, will often go straight for the pudding.”
Anglia Crown offer a wide range of hot and cold desserts that are ideal for a well-balanced, nutritional diet, including choices that do not contain gluten. Our Crown Choice and Advantage ranges include some fifty-eight dishes, including our new, autumnal warming Ginger Chocolate Chip Sponge and delicious, comforting custard that goes with almost any hot dessert.
Our Crown Choice cold dessert includes the perennial favourites such as Chocolate Cake, whilst our Crown Advantage range also offer ‘reduced sugar’ desserts. All individual Crown Advantage desserts come in packs of eighteen, whilst the Crown Choice desserts come in packs of 3 and 6 allowing accurate portioning and cutting down on any potential waste.
Many of the Anglia Crown dishes can be teamed up with fresh fruit, allowing for additional choice. Items such as our Carrot Cake or Vanilla Cheesecake can be accompanied by whipped cream, garnished with seasonal fresh fruit.
Our hot desserts are high in energy, our hot portions of 170kcal and above provide energy and protein dense options and when served with custard provide over 250 kcal per serving. Our cold desserts of 250 kcal and above also meet the energy guidelines in the British Dietetic Association (BDA) Nutrition and Hydration Digest (2017) requirements.
