These blenderized meals are intended to give tube-fed people easy access to 100% real food. If you’re already blending fresh foods for use in a feeding tube at home, our blended meals give you a convenient option when blending isn’t possible or becomes a logistical challenge (traveling, hospitalized, at work or school, etc.)
For those tube-fed people that are on a 100% tube-feeding formula diet, our meals are meant to easily give real food and nutritional variety into their diet. Our meals are NOT formula – they are simply meals of real food that have been pureed to fit through a feeding tube! Replacing 1-2 cans of enteral formula each day with a Real Food Blends meal can easily introduce the benefits of real food into a tube-fed person’s diet. (See: Tips for Transitioning to a Blenderized Diet.) If these meals are being used as the sole source of nutrition, we recommend adding in a multivitamin and salt / sodium daily but always discuss with your medical team.
