Huntington, NY (PRWEB) August 14, 2014
As part of its 2014 plan to continue offering delicious and convenient pureed meals, Smoothe Foods visited the Wyandanch Senior Center in New York to get the members opinion on the flavors in their new menu.
“The seniors & staff were so pleasantly surprised at how delicious our meals are,” says Karen Betz, Founder of Smoothe Foods. “We thought we would have mixed reviews since the meals were pureed, but were overwhelmed with the compliments,” says Betz. “With the aging population, it is increasingly important to introduce new options for individuals with swallowing issues to encourage them to eat.”
"Educating the public about new options for people suffering from swallowing issues can be life saving,” said Karen Betz, founder of Smoothe Foods. “Our goal is to make eating pureed foods as acceptable as wearing Depends adult diapers,” says Betz.
Smoothe Foods encourages our community to seek the advice of a Speech Language Pathologists if swallowing issues occur. “Their professional recommendations are crucial for a patient when they return home or to another facility,” said Founder Karen Betz.
Smoothe Foods offers convenient soft and pureed foods to the healthcare industry and to private consumers, who seek meals with quality nutritional content and taste. In addition, the meals are optimal for those with dysphagia, or difficulty swallowing; chewing sensitivities; eating disorders; as well as those with illnesses, such as cancer, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, strokes, and more.
“Our convenient meals are perfect for individuals living at home or in a facility, who want to maintain their independence but are unable to eat solid foods for fear of potential choking episodes,” said Karen Betz. “And, on that note, our meals are perfect for anyone wanting quality taste without the extensive fillers that are found in many soft and pureed food products on the market these days. As one with experience with a parent with dysphagia myself, I find that it’s reassuring to know we can offer a line of great tasting foods to encourage people to eat. Nowadays, malnutrition, especially among those with health impairments, is a main contributor towards early hospitalizations and other complications.”
Smoothe Foods offers bulk order services, as well as home delivery services. Their new menu includes three bean chili, frittata, spinach lasagna, Vegetarian Swedish meatballs, and more. All meals (http://www.smoothefoods.com/specials.html ) are available, and are crafted with real food tastes in mind. Customers can also enjoy the kosher rating, as well as variety packs that contain (24) six-ounce frozen vegetarian meals.
