Gentle Foods Pureed Meal Bento Set (Ready to Eat)
When eating slows
If your parent is not eating, talk to his doctor, as it can be a sign of illness or a side effect of medications. But also try to figure out the source of the problem yourself, because there could be an easy solution.
With age, the sense of smell diminishes, and with it goes taste, making food less appetizing. Loneliness and depression can also make eating less enjoyable and interesting.
Your mum or dad might say he's not hungry, but in reality, he might have trouble getting into a grocery shop, preparing food, and using utensils. If he is acutely ill or has oral problems, he may be having difficulty chewing and swallowing. If your parent has dementia, he might simply forget to eat. Certain medications can also hinder appetite.
You can make shopping, cooking and eating more manageable for your parent, or you can have meals delivered. Or maybe see if someone could sit with him at mealtime and help him eat.
Gentle Foods Mounded Pureed Meal is recommended for swallowing difficulties
Some of our clients told us that before finding out about GentleFoods, they were eating porridge daily because they had no idea what to cook. This was saddening to hear, because dining should be a positive and comfortable experience regardless of who you are.
GentleFoods focuses on preparing meals that are nutritional and suitable for elderly and dysphagia patients. Our mission to create different types of local favourites in puréed form. We believe that everyone deserves to enjoy their favourite meals comfortably and happily.
GentleFoods® creates familiar, hygienic, and nutritious moulded food (pureed & soft/minced) that stimulates the appetite with the way it looks, tastes, and smells; thereby, bringing the joy of food back to the people with swallowing difficulties.
GentleFoods® believes that the food one enjoyed must always remain the food they enjoy despite the change in their physical condition.
As we prepare blended diets for people with swallowing difficulties, we always keep in mind how GentleFoods® benefits the caregiver as well. We understand the lack of time and know-hows to prepare the blended diet, therefore, our meals, snacks/desserts, and pre-thickened drinks help make life easier for the caregiver at the same time remembering the person who will eat it.
We are different because we give...
Meaning: Putting joy into meal times again
Emotion: Reclaiming the intimacy with food and people

When appetite goes
It's terrifying to watch a parent lose her appetite. Whatever you offer - her favourite nasi lemak or roti canai she usesd to love- she's just not interested.
When one's sense of smell and taste recede, food becomes less appetizing. To perk up food, rather than adding more salt, throw in some herbs, spices, extracts, lemon, or garlic, and heat food whenever possible, so it gives off more aroma. A variety of textures on the plate - crunchy vegetables, creamy sauces, crispy crusts - also makes a meal more appetizing.
A few ideas for easy, healthful snacks, fresh fruit, cheese cubes, vegetables with dip or hummus, raisins and other dried fruit, yoghurt, chicken nuggets, tea sandwiches, egg rolls, meat slices and peanut butter and crackers.
