New recipes for LTC homes are now available!

Posted On: December 19, 2022

We’re excited to announce that our Nutrition in Disguise (NiD) team has added 17 new, delicious recipes to our NiD Recipes for Long-Term Care Homes resource, expanding our selection of recipes to 25!

From mouth watering desserts and sweet treats like bran choco chip cookies and orange creamsicles, to warm, hearty dishes like lasagna and soups, there is a nutritious meal here that you and residents in your home will enjoy and love.

These recipes are available at no-cost for families, care partners, food service team members, and others in LTC who assist with menu planning to add to your LTC home’s menu and eating programs. Each recipe is packed with nutrients to support residents’ health. 

Recipes are vetted by a dietitian, designed to be cost-efficient for LTC home budgets, and even resident-approved for taste, flavour, texture and appearance. You can download the recipes in PDF and in an editable Word format for your home’s customization.

Nutrition in Disguise 

The Nutrition in Disguise (NiD) project focuses on creating nutrient-dense recipes by adding healthy ingredients to common foods that LTC residents already enjoy.

Visit our Nutrition in Disguise page for additional resources and to learn more about this project.



The Nutrition in Disguise resources are made available through the Ontario CLRI at the Schlegel-UW Research Institute for Aging (RIA). These resources are based on research completed by the RIA, the University of Waterloo and the University of Guelph, in partnership with Schlegel Villages. This research was made possible with the generosity of George Weston Limited and Loblaw Companies Limited.
