Mealtimes are an opportunity to be social, to meet our friends and to be in company. Whether communication takes places by speech or by non-verbal means, a mealtime can be an opportunity to communicate with people, go to a different room or even be a welcome break from someone’s company! It is very important that surroundings and company are compatible at mealtimes because if this is not so, a meal will not be enjoyed. Mealtimes are also an opportunity to experience new tastes and textures and can be a time of gastronomic exploration.
