National Dysphagia Level 1: Pureed Nutrition Therapy
This diet consists of pureed, homogenous, and cohesive foods. Food should be “pudding-like.” No coarse textures, raw fruits or vegetables, nuts, and so forth are allowed. Any food that require bolus formation, controlled manipulation, or mastication are excluded.
This diet is designed for people who have moderate to severe dysphagia, with poor oral phase abilities and reduced ability to protect their airway. Close or complete supervision and alternate feeding methods may be required.
