The Meals on Wheels three-course meal accounts for a little over a third of an older person’s nutritional and energy requirements. 

We do recommend that clients try eating the full meal when it is delivered hot. 

However, we also understand that some days you may not feel like this all at once, so perhaps the dessert could be eaten later in the day e.g. for afternoon tea? 

Meals on Wheels does not suggest splitting the meal, but if it is done at anytime, we recommend supplementing the meal by having other food e.g. a toasted sandwich with the soup, a bread roll with the main course, or any of the other meals as suggested by our ‘Healthy Eating Guide’ provided at your initial meeting.
