We’re Glad You’re Here.

Welcome to Real Food for Real People. We are a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing tube-fed individuals and their carers with information and support in adopting and making the most of a blended diet when medically appropriate. We also provide information and support regarding blended diets to dietitians and other healthcare professionals.

What Is a Blended Diet?

A blended diet is nothing more mysterious than regular food blended to a consistency that can be easily passed through a feeding tube.  That’s it.  There is no magic formula or one “right way” to do blended diet.  This site aims to help you find your own right way.

In memory of Eric Aadhaar O’Gorman, who left us too soon, but touched so very many.
This is the sound of all of us.
