We understand that nutrition is a vital part of patient care. Patient satisfaction and their wellness is important to us and this we achieve by providing nutritionally balanced meals overseen by our dedicated dieticians. Our focus is always on therapeutic diets, infection control and individual attention to a patient's dietary needs.

The recent introduction of our Meal Ordering App allows patients to select a personal menu which offers nutritional and allergen information as to their meal choice. The meal selection has direct interface to the kitchen staff thereby ensuring seamless ordering and efficient delivery to patient.

Value Added Services

Dietetics

Our Dietetics Department strives to offer nutritional support and contributes to the wellness needs of the organization and clients through various mediums. The Dietetic Department is involved in analysing menus and reviewing menus in order to offer nutrition advice.  We understand that the nutritional needs of each population group vary, and therefore offer menu advice accordingly. This advice is based on the latest scientific information.

At times, menu advice is not enough to motivate for changes to be implemented, this is where nutrition education/awareness materials play a part. Nutrition education and awareness materials can often lead to a change in our client’s perceptions on healthy eating. Because of the importance of education, we offer various nutrition related talks to our clients.

Staff training is a key aspect at Capitol Caterers and the Dietetics Department forms part of our training team. Training areas which the dieticians focus on include; special diet training (e.g. diabetic diet training), texture modified diet training (e.g. puree diet training) and allergy training.

Our Dietitians are industry specialists and have extensive experience in all the various aspects of Capitol Caterers’ business requirements whilst bringing a personal touch to each contract’s needs.
