The Watercress Company

DCH has been working closely with The Watercress Company to explore the nutritional benefits of Watercress as part of the balanced menu choices offered here at the Trust.

The Watercress Company has now installed a fridge in Damers Restaurant. The fridge will be stocked daily with bags of fresh watercress for staff, patients and visitors to take and try. 

Watercress is a total powerhouse vegetable and is at its healthiest best when eaten raw. It's fabulous in a refreshing smoothie, great in a salad and makes a wonderful pesto too. The Grab-a- Bag station will give people the chance to experiment and really understand why eating watercress is so good for you and the many ways they can use it.
