Contrary to popular belief, a cover letter for nutrition service aide position is not a document that details your experiences. Rather, it is a means of telling a hiring manager what you are capable of, and how much you worked towards achieving something concrete. Two words – skills and accomplishments – make up the body of your cover letter. There is no need to go beyond this. Simply put, a cover letter is a document that “covers” your resume to give it a more profound look, and to make you evident as an individual who is a go-getter when it comes to working in a professional environment.
The ingredients of a cover letter are simple. Put in all that you are capable of and give it a good shake – aka make it spicy! A spicy and intrigue-inducing cover letter goes places. And here is how one can be written:

Dear Mr. Peace:
People in general are becoming more and more diet and health conscious owing to a string of new diseases and medical conditions. And it is people like me who have taken up the responsibility to make sure that they receive what they are looking for. As a seasoned Nutrition Services Aide, I offer my services to Health South, where I believe that I can contribute much in terms of preparing therapeutic and modified diets based on individual preferences and requirements.
My most recent accomplishment has been creation and implementation of programs aimed at meeting the dietary requirements of people with chronic illnesses, especially SLE. I am not only proficient in planning meals – I am also familiar with handling food preparation duties and portioning, and ensuring that patients partake their meals on time. In addition to this, I am specifically trained in handling food rotation work, and making sure that food items are stored according to protocol.
With this amalgamation of skills (particularly in service delivery and meal planning), I am sure that I can become a credit to your facility. I will be in contact with you soon so that we can discuss this in detail – in person. In the meantime, I can be contacted at (555) 555-5555.
