Level 1
Puréed Foods

Foods in this group are puréed to a smooth, mashed potato-like consistency. If necessary, the puréed foods can keep their shape with the addition of a thickening agent. Meat is puréed to a smooth pasty consistency. Hot broth or hot gravy may be added to the puréed meat, approximately 1 oz of liquid per 3 oz serving of meat.


If any food does not purée into a smooth consistency, it may make eating or swallowing more difficult. For example, zucchini seeds sometimes do not blend well.
