Meeting the nutritional needs of your residents can be challenging with today’s strict dietary guidelines, limited budgets, and staff turnover. Lintons360 — our innovative, web-based nutrition tool —helps manage and meet these needs in your group home or resident meal program with a full-view approach.
Lintons360 features streamlined mealtime preparation geared to each resident facility, including choice-based menus, grocery shopping lists, and recipe preparation steps. Information is presented in a user-friendly format, which is beneficial for oversight by managers, surveyors, and accreditation bodies. Consistency and accountability become the standard for mealtime.
Menus are written by Lintons’ registered dietitian nutritionists. Choose from a variety of menus to mix and match, based on what works best for your residents’ likes, dislikes, and nutritional concerns. Nutritional information, diet extensions, textured meal preparation, and shopping lists based on menu choices are just a few of the resources available with Lintons360.
Linked recipes to your menus are simple, delicious, cost-effective and nutritious. Each can be adjusted for the number of servings, eliminating the need for guesswork. Included in the recipes are portion size, ingredient list, step-by-step instructions, nutritional and allergen information, and safety meal preparation standards (HACCP).
Resources from the professionals — including cooking tips, food preparation, and safety in the kitchen — are available to help you create healthy and tasty meals for your residents. Theme menus are available that center on holidays or seasons to break from the menu rotation- a fun way to create interest among residents.
