Let's face it, no one likes being in hospital and everyone assumes that hospital food is always bad, but when it comes to kosher hospital food, the quality and quantity provided is proving very good from supplier Hermolis.
Most people know Hermolis from the food they provide to airlines, they may also know Hermolis from its TV dinner meals that can be microwaved or cooked in the oven, but Hermolis has another side to its business - kosher hospital food.
The meals are similar to those provided in the air and in the kosher grocery stores, so you get roast beef, chicken and fish. The portions are slightly smaller which of course reflects the eating needs of patients - when in a hospital, you'll often not want to each much. But the taste and favours of the meals are helping patients get better.
Among the current meal highlights are roast beef with rice and cabbage, chicken goujons with potatoes and cabbage, plaice in a mushroom sauce with rice and vegetables.
Often in hospital it can be a very tiresome experience for the patient but with the Hermolis meals and the variety of choice that is on offer, mealtimes is something to look forward to and of course, eating well is just one factor of the overall programme in getting better.
Hospitals across the UK provide special meals for patients, so getting a kosher meal should not be a problem, all the patient needs to do is request it. So there's no excuse not to just keep kosher in hospital but more importantly no excuse not to eat hospital food.
Hermolis has excelled itself with its range of meals for hospital patients and shown that kosher can be very good.
