Nutrition Services at The Matthew Tree Project
From January 2013 Sue and the team have been offering a weekly nutrition screening service at the St Jude’s Food Plus Centre and have undertaken training of the volunteers at the Inns Court Food Plus Centre so that this vital service can also be offered there, to help clients at risk of under nutrition. Our aim is to introduce our malnutrition screening service at all The Matthew Tree Project Food Plus Centres during 2015.
Clients are offered the chance to assess their Body Mass index (BMI), identify if they are at risk of under nutrition and monitor weight changes to try to prevent unwanted weight loss.
Advice, where appropriate, is offered to clients on how to balance or increase food intake using the principles of the Eatwell plate.
Where needed, a client's weekly food allowances are increased to assist and suggestions offered on ways to use affordable and nutritious foods in the diet.
