At Coast Care Homes we offer regular snacks throughout the day every day. We believe this encourages residents to eat little and often, it helps regulate blood sugar levels and maintain healthy weight. On baking days residents are able to enjoy the snacks 'homemade' by themselves.
Baking morning or afternoons are always a popular activity. A variety of foods are baked, sweet and savoury, cakes, tarts, pizzas, crumbles, casseroles and soups to name a few. Delicious smells radiate throughout the homes.
This month at Whitecliff, we held a small group cup cake decorating competition, this intimate group activity enabled residents to talk and share their memories and experiences of baking in the past.
