  • About
Use the daintiest dishes in the house. Place a clean napkin on the tray, and, if possible, a fresh flower.
Small quantities are more tempting to a delicate appetite.
Try to surprise the patients by some unexpected food and in this way induce them to take nourishment.
Serve hot food hot, and cold food cold.
Remove the tray as soon as the food is eaten, as food should never be allowed to stand in a sick room.
