@fernanda Hello, puréed food is the best way to give them food as you said she can take liquids without any complication. Talk to your doctor, Your health care team may recommend that you follow a puréed diet for dysphagia. Puréed foods do not need chewing. They are completely smooth with no lumps, skins, strings, or seeds. You can purée other foods using a blender or food processor. Thank You!
