8.3a Ensure any nutritional products are within reach of those that have restrictions on their movement/ mobility

As with fluids, it is also important that you ensure nutritional food products are within reach of individuals that have restrictions on their mobility. This may mean putting the food on a surface which is near to the individual and easily reachable or making using of other equipment such as food trays to serve food that the individual can easily access.

You should always ask if an individual needs additional aid to reach the nutritional product as well just to be safe. If an individual isn’t able to access any nutritional products, their health will suffer, so making sure nutritional products are within reach is very important.
