  • ​Getting fruits and vegetables into your diet when you have trouble chewing or swallowing can be a challenge. Smoothies are a great way to add these nutritious foods to your diet to get the fibre, vitamins, minerals and plant nutrients you need for good health. 
  • If you are experiencing treatment side effects that make it difficult to eat full meals, eating smaller, more frequent meals every 2 or 3 hours is important to help you get the calories and protein you need. If you are only eating small amounts at a time, make every bite count by choosing high-calorie, high-protein foods such as nut and seed butters, fish packed in oil, and full fat dairy products. Nut butters may be difficult to swallow, but they blend nicely in smoothies. 
  • It can be challenging to eat enough fibre-rich foods when you have chewing or swallowing difficulties, as many high-fibre foods are bulky, chewy or very filling. Try adding oat bran to smoothies or hot cereal to add fibre to your diet. A tablespoon of oat bran has 2.5 grams of protein and 2 grams of fibre. The fibre in oat bran helps to prevent constipation, reduce risk of colorectal cancer, and lower cholesterol. It may also lower blood pressure and inflammation.
