Delicious and Nourishing Food for those with Motor Neurone Disease

Motor Neurone Disease (where bulbar involvement is present) can affect speech, swallowing, movement and breathing, which can lead to malnutrition and weight loss.

Maintaining adequate nutritional intake requires people with motor neurone disease to consume foods that have been textually modified (into a puree), using supporting equipment (supportive braces, bowls and utensils) and increasing their calorie intake.

The Pure Food Co food specialises in pureed foods which have a high energy intake and can be quickly and easily served. We provide a range of pureed meals which taste taste delicious and are a very comfortable, soft texture, ensuring people get the nutrition they require.

We recommend that you see a dietitian to make sure your health requirements are being met. For more tips and information on MND you can click the following link: http://www.mnda.org
