Here at Made For You Softer Foods, we believe that everyone should look forward to a tasty, nutritionally balanced meal. That’s why we have created Made For You Softer Foods.
Made For You Softer Foods from Oakhouse Foods is a softer foods range of frozen ready meals. We offer a wide range of meals, that are beautifully shaped and made with quality ingredients to provide a nutritious and satisfying meal, suitable for people who experience chewing or swallowing difficulties known as dysphagia
The Made For You range includes 80 dishes to choose from including chicken, beef, lamb, fish and vegetarian recipes. We also offer a tasty selection of lighter bites, desserts, and breakfast options as well as mini meals for those with smaller appetites.
All our meals have been prepared in line with the IDDSI Framework and are suitable for the following levels:
- Level 4 Puréed diet
- Level 5 Minced and Moist diet
- Level 6 Soft and Bite-Sized diet
This means all our meals are safe and compliant with the IDDSI level that has been advised by a speech and language therapist.
We appreciate that the appearance of our meals is of importance as this helps to make the meal more visually appealing and appetising. It is common for people with dysphagia to have a reduced appetite and we understand that the visual appearance of meals can help to increase appetites and subsequently encourage greater food intake at mealtimes.
Our range of meals have also been developed to ensure the nutritional content will meet the nutritional needs of someone who has been advised to follow a texture modified diet. Research has shown that up to 50% of people with dysphagia are malnourished or at risk of malnutrition. There could be numerous reasons for this, including a reduced appetite or the inability to consume large quantities of food in one sitting. Our range of ‘classic’ and ‘mini meals’ can help to ensure that the most nutritional value is being provided from the meals being consumed.
Preparation of texture modified food for people with chewing or swallowing difficulties in a care setting can sometimes be challenging which is why we have a large range of meals to suit people who have dysphagia. All of our softer foods ready meals are made to be cooked straight from frozen to make them easy and quick to prepare. Our meals can be cooked in the microwave or the oven, just be sure to follow the cooking instructions on each dish.
The Made For You Softer Foods range also include a small selection of ‘allergen aware’ dishes suitable for a Level 4 Puréed diet. These meals do not contain any of the 14 known allergens.
