Delicious and Nourishing Food for People with Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) can damage the nerve fibres in the brain that control swallowing, or damage the nerves in the muscles that execute this function.

As a result, chewing and readying food for swallowing may become difficult. Modifications to the texture of the food can increase food intake and safety.

A Speech and Language Therapist (SLT) will need to assess your situation before recommending specific management strategies.

Tips for easier eating

  • Puree can be an easy way to consumer nutritious food - moisten with gravies and sauces
  • Avoid large chunks of any solid food, as they can lodge in your airways

The Pure Food Co range of delicious soft puree meals assist in providing a comfortable eating experience for those struggling with chewing and swallowing.
