Poor food intake - mental health

    Hello, I was wondering if any of you working in acute mental health with adults have utilised any taste-based interventions? I am attempting to engage a patient on a 1:1 basis at present who has very poor food intake, but who has responded positively when a food based group was facilitated, and ate some of the food prepared. There is also a language barrier. 

    Having liaised with the dietician, my thought was to offer "taster" items comprising different flavours, to assess the patient's preferences/ encourage food intake.

    Any thoughts or recommendations would be very welcome.
