Happy World Health Day

We are celebrating World Health Day 2016 by featuring some of our most nutritious and healthy recipes from our Executive Chef Paul Ratcliffe. These recipes are often included on our scrumptious menus.

On the 7th April, World Health Day will be celebrated across the country, promoting healthy living. Every year, the World Health Organisation (WHO) select a priority area of global public health concern as its main theme. The goal of this year’s campaign is to raise awareness of diabetes.

Maintaining a well-balanced and healthy diet is key to preventing the disease and caring for those with diabetes. At Morris Care we strive to provide nutritious and balanced meals for all our residents across all of our homes including those who are living with diabetes. Here is our recipe for a Crab and Mango salad.
