My Mom is a stroke victim who has dentures that fit very poorly. Are foods high in fiber as nutritious if pureed?


Posted by MAMAP

As mentioned above, my Mom has difficulty digesting coursely chopped food because of her ill-fitting dentures and the effects of her stroke.  I am very involved in her daily care and have seen her suffer with severe constipation and just want to make sure she's getting enough fiber.  Since she can't eat raw fruit or vegetables, will these foods pureed give her the fiber she needs?
