Pediatric Nutritionist: Blenderized & Pureed Gtube Diets

A recent Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta Nutrition Support Colloquium provided a terrific update on the use of blenderized and pureed diets via gastrostomy tube.

Here’s the link to the talk (including slides) and a summary on the Pediatric Nutritionist blog site: The Blenderized and Pureed by Gtube Diets

I’ve found these diets to be particularly useful in children with retching.  In addition, these diets can lower costs, reduce other symptoms like constipation, and appeal to parents who desire more typical foods in their child’s diet.
