THERAPEUTIC CATERING
The Department of Hotel Catering and Institutional Management of Accra Technical University, is organizing Six Weekends of intensive Competency Based Weekend Training in Therapeutic Catering.

A therapeutic diet is modified from a 'normal' diet and is prescribed to meet a medical or special nutritional need. It is part of a clinical treatment and in some cases can be the principle treatment of a condition. Whenever a patient has a therapeutic diet prescribed by a dietitian or by medical staff, the caretaker must be able to provide this. When planning therapeutic diets it is essential to have accurate knowledge of the nutrient and ingredient composition of all dishes and individual menu items to determine their suitability. This makes the use of standardised, analysed recipes crucial in the delivery of appropriate food. Menus should reflect local population needs and healthcare organisations need to develop their own protocol for the requirement and provision of therapeutic diets for their population.

The aim of the Six Weekends Course in Therapeutic Catering is to provide catering staff with training on how to translate Nutritional Standards into menus.
Participants will get hands-on experience in preparing and cooking healthy food in through a dedicated training kitchen at Accra Technical University.

 

Course Objective
Participants who complete the course will demonstrate:

  • Knowledge in the nutritional requirements of various age groups.
  • Knowledge in healthy catering for Special Diets (based on health, religious, and other needs).
  • Ability to analyse and choose suitable ingredients for various assignments.
  • Practical competence in various cooking methods.
  • Ability to produce food and beverages which meet health requirements.
  • Ability to employ and coordinate the services of organised labour in food production.
