A regular diet has been resumed for a client following a major traumatic injury. The nurse selects from the diet menu which of the following meals that would be most appropriate for the client?

1. Vegetable lasagna, bibb lettuce with dressing, white roll, and a slice of pound cake
2. Chicken breast, brown rice, broccoli, and fresh orange slices
3. Fried codfish fillet, macaroni and cheese, peas, and flavored gelatin
4. Roast beef, mashed potatoes, corn, and ice cream


Nutrient stores exhausted during major trauma include protein, B complex vitamins, zinc, and vitamins A and C. Option 2 is rich in all these nutrients. All of the other options reflect a lack of specific nutrients needed to replenish stores. Critical words are major traumatic injury and replenish nutrients. Recall significance of protein and vitamins for wound healing to direct you to option 2.
