Blended tube feeding. Presented by Lina Breik, APD and Claire Kariya, RD, Canada

Tube fed individuals and their loved ones are quickly discovering that blended food is an option to ultra-processed commercial feeds. In the past, dietetic organisations advised against using blended diets due to concerns of blocked tubes, nutritional inadequacy and contamination. With these concerns not proving true, and because dietitians are the enteral feed experts, we should feel able to support our clients if their decision is to use a blended diet from home cooked meals.

Blended tube feeding is co-presented by Lina Breik, who is beginning to use blended tube feeds with her Australian clients and Claire Kariya, a Canadian dietitian who has been using blenderised feeds with her clients for over 15 years.

They provide information about:

  • Definition and background
  • Client suitability
  • Myth busting
  • When should blended tube feeding be considered
  • Benefits and risks
  • How to create nutritious blended meals 
    • Nutritional adequacy
    • Energy
    • Protein
    • Micronutrients
  • Practical aspects
    • Texture
    • Food safety
    • Nutritional monitoring
