“Working in oncology, I am often asked about more integrative tube feeding therapies. Prior to Alissa’s talk, I didn’t know where to start. After attending, I clearly understood how to begin my patients on a blenderized diet and manage their feeding plan, transitioning them from traditional formula to real food and troubleshooting any issues that may arise. You will walk away knowing that you have the tools and skills needed to guide a patient who wants to do blenderized feeds. This is a great resource for nutrition professionals and students!”

“Alissa’s knowledge about blenderized tube feeding is invaluable to any professional working with tube feed-dependent patients. Her presentation was very well outlined and provided guidance for initiating, transitioning, and managing blenderized feeds. She provided several important details that one may not necessarily think about right away. Through this presentation, I feel confident to assist my patients with incorporating whole foods into their diet!”

-Taylor Evans, MS, RD, CDN 


“At the end of the webinar I felt empowered and inspired to help more patients and their families pursue blenderized tube feedings. Cooking and feeding is one of the greatest ways we care for those we love. As a registered dietitian being able to guide our patients and families in providing safe, nutritious blenderized feedings is a priceless skill for us to be able to offer our patients. What better way for us to help our patients eat well via their tube feeding. I now have more tools and knowledge to be able to guide patients in home blenderized tube feedings.”
