"Hospital Food"

About: Perth Children's Hospital

(as a parent/guardian),

Whilst I'd assume the food produced in the hospital kitchen meets contractual obligations. The food is ice cold when it arrives on the ward. I feared my child this morning would break their teeth on their ham and cheese toastie. It was that hard and cold. It feels like robots carry the food to the ward, not sure of the value for money in that. Can I suggest that someone measures food temperatures at the ward to ensure food is served IAW (in accordance with) health regulations.
