Tube Feeding with a Blenderized Diet Webinar
(1.5 CEU)


Are your patients asking about putting real foods through their feeding tube? Are you unsure where to start? This webinar includes everything you need to feel confident initiating and managing blenderized diets. 

As interest in natural foods increases, more and more people want to add real food to their feeding tube regimens. While the blenderized diet has largely been used in the pediatric population, many adults are now using real food to increase their feeding tolerance and quality of life.

Drawing on her four years of blenderized diet experience, Alissa will teach you how to assess the advantages and disadvantages and decide if it is appropriate for your patient. She’ll walk you through the exact steps to build a blenderized feeding tube regimen, including how to start someone on a blenderized diet, how to progress the diet, and how to create blenderized diet recipes.

“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!”
