Navigating eating challenges with Jane Clarke
Nutritionist and Cordon Bleu chef, Jane Clarke, joins Liz on the Liz Earle Wellbeing Show to discuss eating challenges, with a particular focus on dementia. While memory loss and confusion are the most well-known symptoms of this neurological disease, it can also negatively affect a person’s ability and desire to eat. This is something Jane experienced first-hand when her father was diagnosed with the disease in 2006. Saddened to discover that most people with dementia are served puréed ‘brown mush’, she set out to develop a different approach to the eating challenges these people faced.
