We’re thrilled to add this new meal to the mix and offer even more nutritional variety for people with feeding tubes. - Julie Bombacino, Co-Founder & CEO, Real Food Blends
CHESTERTON, Ind. (PRWEB) November 13, 2018
Real Food Blends, makers of 100% real food meals for people with feeding tubes, and the company that started a real food revolution in the medical community, is proud to launch their sixth meal: Turkey, Sweet Potatoes & Peaches. Like the company’s other five meals, and unlike traditional enteral formulas, the turkey meal includes only 100% real food ingredients with no added sugar, synthetic vitamins or preservatives.
“We’re thrilled to add this new meal to the mix and offer even more nutritional variety for people with feeding tubes,” said Real Food Blends Co-Founder & CEO Julie Bombacino. “We’ve had many customers ask for even more real food meal options and have been fine tuning the turkey blend for a long time -- it means a lot to us to be able to introduce this, especially right before Thanksgiving.”
The turkey meal has 320 calories and features a very simple ingredient list — turkey, sweet potatoes, green beans, peaches, water and olive oil. Every Real Food Blends meal has only 5-7 real food ingredients by design with the belief that whole, minimally processed ingredients are best. With nearly 400 different conditions that can lead to a person needing a feeding tube, according to the Feeding Tube Awareness Foundation, simple ingredient lists can make it easier for those using Real Food Blends to determine if anything might interact with a medication or a known allergy or intolerance.
Real Food Blends also embraces a mealtime approach to tube feeding — people with feeding tubes are often excluded during meals, which, beyond the food itself, is a time to connect and bond with loved ones. With the holidays upon us, the Turkey, Sweet Potatoes & Peaches meal is the perfect way to include friends and family members with feeding tubes in holiday meals while also giving them the chance to enjoy some traditional holiday foods.
“Food and mealtime are so important, especially at this time of the year. Every day we hear from our Facebook community of more than 100,000 people about how much they appreciate being able to incorporate a variety of real food into their or their loved one’s tube feeding diet -- and bring back the joy of mealtime. We can’t wait to see how our customers incorporate the new Turkey, Sweet Potatoes & Peaches meal into their Thanksgiving celebrations -- and their everyday meal plans after that,” said Real Food Blends Co-Founder, Tony Bombacino.
The new Turkey, Sweet Potatoes & Peaches meal is available now nationwide through Real Food Blends’ large network of DMEs, medical supply, and home infusion companies or direct via RealFoodBlends.com.
