Promoting sleep with baking at Lulworth House Residential Care Home

Last week, our Baking Club residents at Lulworth House Residential Care Home worked with ingredients which help to promote healthy sleep.

We have used banana and oats so far, to make delicious banana and oat muffins, oat cookies and some yummy raisin and chocolate chip flapjacks.

Bananas contain magnesium which can help aid a good night’s sleep and oats are high in carbs and fibre, which can induce drowsiness when eaten before bed. They are also a source of melatonin.

We also had a day researching other recipes which include kiwi and almond/almond milk.

It has been a busy week for us – we will definitely sleep well!
