Nutrition

  • Choose soft sources of protein if you have difficulty chewing or swallowing. Protein is an important part of our diet and is in every living cell in our body! If you are having difficulty swallowing try protein foods like tofu, soft cheeses, yogurt, beans and legumes. 
  • Make sauces out of fruit! Remove the skins and seeds from berries to make them easier to swallow. Blueberries are among the fruits with a higher level of antioxidants and are an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K and manganese. Drizzle fruit sauces on top of yogurt, cottage cheese, oatmeal, and more. Adding sauces to food will also help if you have a dry mouth.
