Full of flavour and healthy too

We aim to make our food tasty as well as healthy by using a variety of different methods:

  • healthier oils rather than saturated fats
  • vegetables steamed to maintain their water soluble vitamins
  • vegetables cooked 'al dente' to ensure optimum nutrition
  • twice weekly offerings of oily fish on our specials menu, high in omega 3 and protein

Special diets

As a hospital we realise many of our patients may require special diets and we frequently accommodate patients with the following dietary needs:

  • diabetic
  • vegetarian
  • vegan
  • ovo-lacto vegetarians
  • gluten free/coeliac
  • halal
  • lactose free

As part of our ongoing commitment to the care of our patients, one of our chef's has recently completed a Diploma in Diet and Nutrition and is working closely with the team to continually improve the nutritional value of the food we offer.

So, when you or a loved-one has a visit planned to Spire Norwich Hospital you can rest assured that the quality and taste of our food will be just as high as the standard of our healthcare services.
