An introduction to a Texture D diet including meal and snack ideas.


Classification: SHP (Specialist Health Professional)

Advice requires detailed explanation from a Dietitian or other specialist Health Professional with appropriate nutritional knowledge, to enable correct understanding and implementation.

A series of diet leaflets on eating, drinking and swallowing (EDS) disorders, which are tailored to the Target Group (Target Group) needs.

The Target Group will understand:

  • their EDS difficulties
  • the risks associated with their EDS difficulties, particularly reduced food and fluid intake which can cause malnutrition and dehydration.
  • Understand the need for textured diets and fluids as part of management of their EDS difficulties.
  • Describe which food and fluid consistency has been recommended for them
  • The Target Group will be aware of the 5 food groups and the amounts of food to eat from each group for general health, but this is not the main priority in this resource.
