Foods in pureed and mechanical soft diets have a smoother consistency than regular foods. They require very little or no chewing at all to swallow. You may need to be on a pureed or mechanical soft diet if you:
- Have trouble chewing or swallowing
- Had mouth surgery
- Have trouble moving or have lost feeling in parts of your mouth, such as your lips or tongue
A pureed diet is made up of foods that require no chewing, such as mashed potatoes and pudding. Other foods may be blended or strained to make them the right consistency. Liquids, such as broth, milk, juice, or water may be added to foods to make them the right consistency. Soft foods help elderly people who have difficulty chewing or swallowing continue to eat balanced, nutritious meals. Doctors also may recommend softer foods following head, neck or abdominal surgery, and for patients undergoing treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation. Tender or soft foods help ease the amount of chewing and swallowing needed to ingest food. You can also modify tougher foods in texture and consistency for better tolerance.
