When do I have to follow a Pureed Diet?
In a pureed diet, foods are blenderized until a consistency like mashed potatoes is reached. You may need this type of diet if you have dysphagia, or a difficulty chewing or swallowing. This often happens post stomach related surgeries. Without careful planning, your diet can lack nutrition, resulting in weight loss. When selecting meals, incorporate each of the food groups and try to eat small, frequent meals to maintain a balanced diet and meet your nutritional goals.
