A blended diet contains food that has been combined to
create a liquid to be consumed by a straw or spoon, or fed directly into the
stomach though an enteral tube feeding.
You may need a blended food diet if you are having difficulty chewing or
swallowing. Blended meals may also be
recommended if you have had recent facial surgery or a broken jaw. People reliant on enteral nutrition may opt
to use a blended food diet as an alternative to canned nutritional products.
