Food for Thought

“Defect in cooking, defect in choice of diet, defect in choice of hours for taking diet, defect in appetite of patient, yet all of them are generally comprehended in the one sweeping assertion that the patient has no appetite” Florence Nightingale 1860

Hospital Food is notorious for being inappropriate and sometimes inedible. It often lacks both nutrition and appeal for patients who are often already lacking appetite. However, some hospitals are now responding to criticisms by providing tasty food at times when people want to eat it!
