Variations on a Theme

Posted Aug 07 2009 7:15pm

In the world of home-made blended meals for g-tube, there are a wealth of options! Generally I avoid foods that will thicken too much or become glue-y, as well as cruciferous vegetables. Recently our family had a wonderful salad with parsley, feta cheese, red onions, garbanzo beans, cucumbers, toasted pita bread and a lemon juice/olive oil dressing. I blended this up for Little Miss and added red kale and cooked ground beef. It worked very well. The cheese did not cause any problems whatsoever.

The added benefit was the joy of feeding our girlie-girl the same thing we were eating and being able to do it on the spot.

Keeping an open mind to possibilities as we feed our kids makes it all easier and less stressful. At least that’s my experience.
