Why is fluids and nutrition & food safety important?
This fluids and nutrition e-learning course aim to provide health and social care staff with examples of how they can provide adequate hydration and nutrition for people in their care, including, in particular, the very young and older people.
The accredited ELearning course includes some examples of when people may need additional support with meals and hydration and encourages staff to be mindful of their duty of care in this regard.
What we eat is vital to our health and well-being and how we look, feel and function. It is important that people have a diet that is safe to eat and has all the nutrients they need. Food safety is essential when preparing and handling food.
Not all substances and objects that can cause harm or illness can be seen. This means that people can become ill from eating food that tastes normal and looks safe. Whether you occasionally make someone a snack such as a sandwich or are regularly involved in preparing meals, you should always make sure that the food is safe to eat.
