Food and Nutrition Services at Palomar Health
Palomar Health’s Food and Nutrition Services department provides wholesome, nourishing and well-balanced meals that will aid in the treatment and recovery of our patients.
Patients are offered a menu that includes our most popular and our healthiest foods. The meals are flavorful and designed to provide patients with optimum nutrition during their stay with us. A member of the Nutrition Team will visit each patient for his or her meal selection and Registered Dietitians are available for comprehensive nutrition assessments and patient counseling.
At Palomar Health, we began our healthy foods journey in 2010 when we signed Health Care Without Harm’s ‘Healthy Food in Health Care Pledge.’ Since that time, we have had substantial success in reducing meat consumption, increasing procurement of sustainable, local and organic products, and decreasing sugar-sweetened beverages in our facilities. In March 2015, Palomar Health chefs teamed up with plant-based culinary expert Chef Wanda White to learn how to make healthy, flavorful dishes without meat, egg or dairy ingredients. You can read more about it here.
