Eating is an extremely social activity. Whether it’s catching up on the day over a regular evening meal or celebrating a special occasion such as a birthday, graduation, anniversary, wedding or Christmas, food and eating are used by many as a way to interact with our loved ones.

For those with dysphagia it can be quite isolating not being able to eat and drink what everyone else can. Mealtimes may become less pleasurable and those with dysphagia may experience anxiety or embarrassment in relation to eating. If individuals with dysphagia are feeling this way it may result in them eating and drinking less at mealtimes, which means they might not be receiving adequate nutrition. It is therefore very important to be able to provide texture modified versions of everyday foods so that individuals with swallowing difficulties feel included and get the nutrition they need. This is especially important for kids so they don’t feel different to their peers.
