Healthy Diet for people with PMLD

Healthy Diet for people with PMLD

At The Bevern Trust, the people we care for have very specific dietary requirements, so all our meals are home-made, nutritious and lovingly prepared from scratch. We work closely with parents and carers to make sure we avoid foods that might cause allergies, or for people that are gluten or lactose intolerant that the meals we create are delicious and healthy, 365 days a year.

Sue (above) and Diane are our wonderful cooks and supported by Jo who volunteers with them in the kitchen at our home Bevern View, create delicious meals for people who have the most complex needs. They work hard to make sure all our residents and respite visitors are served meals that are carefully matched to their care plans, meals that they love and that they will be able to digest easily.

People with profound and multiple learning disabilities (PMLD) are more likely to have nutritionally related health problems than the general population. Issues relating to body weight and nutritional status are often caused by health conditions such as swallowing difficulties, gastro-oesophageal reflux, diabetes, constipation and poor oral health.
