Blue Melamine Side Plate - 16.5cm
Eating a healthy, balanced diet is important, especially for people with dementia.
It can help maintain physical and mental wellbeing, helping people to live a longer happier life.
As dementia progresses, colour definition decreases. If the crockery is a similar colour to the food, the person with dementia may not be able to see the food. For example if a white plate is used for potatoes, rice, pasta, white fish or cauliflower, it can be diffi cult for some people to see this food on a white plate. Some white foods such as carbohydrates can be the most calorific part of a main meal and are vitally important.
Brightly coloured dinnerware can significantly improve food intake, plates stand out from the table, and the food stands out from the plate, which stimulates the person to see the food & eat more.
Studies have shown growing evidence that blue, yellow & red are the most effective colours for Dementia care.
This heavy duty melamine dinnerware is lightweight, with the look and feel of ceramic.
