Meals

The choice is yours

The EGZB offers you a free choice of menu if no specific diet is recommended by the doctors, as in the case of diabetes.

Our staff will ask you for your preferences; you can choose between various different lunch menus which even take account of unusual forms of diet such as ovolacto-vegetarian food.

You can also order snacks between meals, such as biscuits, fresh fruit or stewed fruit.

Free nutritional advice

You can use your stay in the EGZB to review your previous diet habits. Our dietician will analyse your eating patterns and talk you through necessary changes if possible and how you can implement them every day without too much effort. No fee is charged for a one-off counselling session; it is covered by the fees paid by your health insurance fund, when prescribed by the ward doctor.

We give great importance to nutrition. We know from various studies in our hospital that a healthy diet promotes the healing process and can help to avoid many complications such as infections and falls. Even cardiovascular diseases can be influenced positively by a diet that is rich in vitamins, contains only low cholesterol levels and contains plenty of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. This is the reason why the EGZB always only offers diet margarine on bread.
