Each year, medical treatments leave millions of patients with chewing and swallowing difficulties. Most hospitals deal with this by puréeing their food. The unfortunate result is that food becomes unappetizing, and patients fail to obtain the nutrition they need. Now, nutritionists Sandra Woodruff and Leah Gilbert-Henderson have written theSoft Foods for Easier Eating Cookbook,
an easy-to-follow guide that offers maximum nutrition and taste with minimum discomfort.
Part One highlights simple strategies for living with chewing and swallowing difficulties, and offers guidelines for modifying recipes for soft and smooth texture, and to increase or decrease calories, fat, and carbohydrates. Part Two presents over 150 recipes for smashing smoothies, sumptuous soups, hearty entrées, and more. Information on nutrition and texture accompany each recipe, making it easy to find dishes that satisfy both your dietary needs and your love of good food.

The result is not very appetizing, so many people refust to eat thereby making it impossible to obtain adequate nutrition. This book is an easy to follow guide designed to provide maximum nutrition and taste with minimum discomfort.
