Managing Dysphagia With Good Nutrition
There are many reasons why you may need to follow a pureed diet. You may only need this diet for a short time if you’ve had an injury, dental work or surgery. Perhaps you may be going through chemotherapy or another cancer treatment. If you have had a long-term health condition that affects how you eat and swallow and experience dysphagia, you may need the diet longer.
A pureed diet helps those with eating difficulties get the food and nourishment they need to help prevent malnutrition and weight loss that can be common with this condition.
When you have a medical condition that leads to dysphagia or you experience temporary difficulties in swallowing, getting the nutrition you need to live a healthy life can be difficult. By changing the size and consistency of your meals and avoiding certain foods, you can lower your choking risk and still enjoy the traditional meals that you love.
With our delicious menu of pureed meals crafted by professional chefs and registered dietitians, you can choose from a variety of soft foods that are easy to chew and swallow and offer the appropriate texture and thickness for managing dysphagia.
All our pureed meals are:
- Easy to swallow
- Fully prepared and delivered to your home
- Designed to meet the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics requirement for dysphagia
