Celebrity chefs James Martin and Stephen Terry have helped draw up a list of recipes for hospital meals, under Welsh government nutrition plans.
Saturday Kitchen star Martin and Abergavenny-based Terry have backed a list of 92 different dishes.
The recipes - 18 soups, 38 main course items and 42 desserts and snacks - are set to be available on wards by March.
Health Minister Lesley Griffiths said: "Food should be viewed with the same importance as medication."
