apetito celebrates Veganuary with new plant-based meals

apetito has announced a selection of new, nutritionally balanced vegan dishes to coincide with Veganuary.

Expanding on its current selection of plant-based options, such as the BBQ Mexican bean and jackfruit and Vegan Thai red curry, from March the leading meals provider will be offering some new dishes including a Plant-based shepherd’s pie, made with beans and pulses and topped with sweet potato mash, alongside a seasonal spring vegetable medley filled with carrot, green beans, cabbage, and asparagus tips.

According to the British Dietetics Association, carefully planned plant-based diets provide all the nutrients needed for healthy living at all ages, while research by the British Nutrition Foundation links a plant-based diet to a reduced risk of heart disease and type 2 diabetes .

Richard Woodward, general manager of care homes at apetito, says: “We recognise that there is a growing need to offer a wider range of both vegetarian and plant-based dishes. Whether for environmental, ethical or health reasons, we have seen a shift in the dietary needs of residents in care homes as more are moving away from regularly eating meat.

“We’re delighted to be introducing these new dishes to enhance our range and provide a greater choice to residents, with familiar and traditional flavours they’ll enjoy. We also see the positive impacts that swapping out some meat-based meals for plant-based can have on the environment and feel passionately as a business about driving sustainable change.”
