A puréed food diet provides nutrition for individuals suffering from many different diseases and conditions, but is designed specifically for patients who have difficulty chewing or swallowing.
People with dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing, usually follow this type of diet to prevent choking or silent aspiration. The length of time a person uses a pureed diet varies depending on the cause. People recovering from a stroke often use the diet for a period of weeks to months, and those with worsening throat cancer or a progressive degenerative disease may need to use the diet for the remainder of their lives.
GA Foods offers 7 frozen options of puréed meals for seniors in 7-meal and 5-meal menus.
