About the webinar:
Improving the nutritional quality of aged care menus on a large scale can be challenging. In this webinar, presented by Louise Murray, you’ll learn about the goals of food fortification in aged care settings. Louise will provide practical tips for developing delicious fortified recipes, including when to add oral nutritional supplements (ONS) and how to maintain flavour and food stability. Louise will also troubleshoot the use of ONS powders in large-scale cooking to help you support aged care chefs.
About the speaker:
Louise Murray is an Accredited Practising Dietitian, specialising in aged care nutrition. She initially started her career in clinical nutrition however, the opportunity arose as a new grad to review an aged care menu. Her determination was ignited to remove party pies and sausage rolls from aged care menus, and it has become her passion to improve food quality for older people over the past 17 years.
Louise has a special interest in teaching chefs how to cook high nutritional quality food for older people while still making it taste delicious. She also teaches dietitians the skills and knowledge required to become an effective and supportive dietitian in aged care through an online mentoring program, to do more than just individual referrals. Her consultancy Nosh to Nourish now specialises in both consulting directly to aged care organisations, as well as mentoring dietitians to become leaders in aged care nutrition and food services.
