Recently Bereaved Elderly Man Can Finally Feed Himself

“My parents had been married for 50+ years and the household tasks were divided into indoors for Mum, and outdoors for Dad. Whilst Mum was alive, Dad’s food magically appeared on the table at the prerequisite times. When Mum died, Dad did not know how to cook, amongst many other indoor household tasks – the Finger Food book gave him a meal structure to follow, and simple recipes to cook, all at the time of grieving a profound loss, and consequently made an important contribution to his coping with his loss and grief.”

Unwell, Elderly Lady Finds Finger Food Solution

  • Non-repeating main courses, desserts and snacks to ensure menu variety.
  • Sensory appeal such as taste, texture, aroma and colour.

  • Fun to eat.

Who Is Finger Foods For?

Being able to feed oneself as a child is one of the first achievements in the long journey to independence, thus the loss of that independence is a profound loss. Healthy finger food menus and recipes can delay that loss.

  • babies transitioning from pureed food to regular meals,
  • children with newly-acquired cooking skills,
  • young adults who have recently left home,

  • people who enjoy cooking,
  • people who want fun picnics,
  • those who need to develop cooking skills due to bereavement, becoming a Carer, or are now living alone,
