Nothing like a toastie!

by Lisa Carr

New to the award-winning texture modified range from leading meals provider, apetito, are three delicious new and improved level 4 toasties that residents will love as a snack or light meal.

Homes can choose from three classic flavours; Puréed Hot Cheese Toastie, Puréed Hot Tuna Toastie, and Puréed Hot Bacon Toastie. 

The toasties meet all the criteria for IDDSI Level 4 meals and have been cleverly crafted to look just like the much-loved dish which remains a firm favourite and is still seen as the ultimate comfort food across all generations.

apetito’s toasties can be cooked easily from frozen in under 10 mins in the microwave or 30 minutes in the oven, and have been specially developed to allow residents who may be living with swallowing difficulties (dysphagia) the sheer enjoyment of eating one of the country’s best loved foods.

Speaking for apetito, Richard Woodward, General Manager Care Homes, says:

“We all love a cheese toastie – that melty, oozy, gooey comfort food.  And our specialist nutrition team has been working for the last year to develop an improved range which means that care home residents that require a softer diet, can enjoy toasties, which meet all the level four requirements, yet are delicious, nutritious and retain all the attributes of this famous dish.

“Even David Beckham loves a toastie – although it appears his favourite has baked beans as the filling!  We haven’t had a big demand for this one yet”.
