If you feed them, they will come. Providing food at a meeting or other event can promote attendance and provide a welcoming atmosphere. If you’ve been asked to prepare refreshments for a meeting or workshop, here are some factors to consider.

What to serve

Simple, delicious and healthy can be the first consideration in mind. Consider people’s dietary restrictions and offer a variety of refreshments that are low-fat, sugar-free, caffeinated and decaffeinated. But in Malaysia, there always few choose of refreshment attendance prefer while events.

Morning refreshments:

  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Pastries
  • Fruit
  • Fried noodles
  • Nasi Lemak
  • Mihun Siam

Afternoon refreshments :

  • Fruit juice
  • Coffee
  • Tea
  • Kuih-muih

How much to serve

The required amount of food depends on the age of the people you are serving and the time of day. If you are serving food when people are likely to be hungry, for example after work or close to a mealtime, allow more per person.

The rule of thumb for small appetizer (such as cut fruit) is 5 to 6 pieces per person. Larger items such as the fruit, kuih muih and pastries mentioned above require as few as 1 piece per person.

The reason behind to prevent attendants eat too much is to make sure they won’t feel sleepy during events.

How to serve

Provide plates, napkins, spoons and forks, cups, party picks, serving containers, tablecloths, and other utensils necessary for serving and eating refreshments. If people have to balance plates on their laps offer spill- proof, small foods that are easy to handle. Also remember condiments such as creamer and sugar.

How to be safe

Keep hot foods at 140 degrees or above and serve them promptly. If you can’t serve foods quickly, use heating appliances such as catering warmer set, regent food warmer set. For keep cold foods at 40 degrees or below. Use ice, coolers or a refrigerator and serve cold foods promptly.
