On admission to hospital our dietician will assess your needs so that you can agree a meal plan. The menu is carefully designed by our chef and dieticians based on
research that shows which foods help your body and your mood.
We will work with you through a series of small steps towards foods and portions where healthy growth and development can restart. Our aim is to re-establish and
maintain healthy eating habits required for a happy life.
We understand that making changes to the amount and type of food you eat may cause you a lot of anxiety. During meals staff eat with you and provide support and
encouragement to help you through. In this way you can learn to manage your worries and concerns about food.
We work with you and your family to plan eating together both within the hospital and at home.
As you progress you will be encouraged to take more responsibility for your eating agreed between you, your parents/carers and the clinical team.
