Dysphagia Meal Selection

Overview

nine different textured food options for dysphagia

There is a vast array of dysphagia meals available, with different textures, allergens, and nutritional values. This makes selecting the right one for the right patient a difficult task.

Our procurement and dietetics teams have scoured through the ready prepared meals that we offer and produced a simple tool that allows you to easily see exactly what meals match the criteria you’re looking for, and provides the supplier codes to order.

To make searching easier, there are many filter options available including main course or dessert, vegan or halal, nutrition (per portion or per 100g), and allergens. And most importantly, by the assigned International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative (IDDSI) number, indicating the texture of the food or drink.

This support was originally created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, but can be used indefinitely.

Dysphagia Tool Updates

We will be updating the tool monthly to keep on top of product changes. Check the date at the top of the tool to be sure you have the latest version.

See our Downloads ▼ section for the tool.

Quality statement: The information in the meal selector tool is provided based on information from suppliers and is correct at the time of publishing. Please do check the labelling on products to confirm these details, for example, allergens.
