Finger Food Menu Planning for Cognitive Care
There’s good news for cognitive care foodservice menu planners. Finger food menu planning just got a whole lot easier—and nutritious. Holistic care for your cognitive care patients requires more than just the typical collection of finger foods such as sandwiches and chicken nuggets. That’s why Chicken of the Sea® and Davidson’s Safest Choice® have partnered to develop a finger foods recipe collection that is nutrient dense and flavor packed.
Eggs + Seafood = Nutritious Meals
Davidson’s™ eggs provide protein, iron, vitamins A, D, and E, riboflavin, phosphorous, and choline to keep your patients full and energized longer. Chicken of the Sea® salmon and tuna products provide protein, B vitamins, vitamin D, phosphorous, and selenium, along with marine omega-3s that can help prevent cognitive decline. Together, they offer sound nutritional building blocks for your healthy menus.
