Events purchase available at OSHA
Traditionally, transitional foods use have been focused on the pediatric population as “first finger foods.” But they can offer improved food enjoyment to adults on a modified texture diet. Questions related to assessment, application, safety, and
patient variables will be explored providing a clearer idea of use in clinical practice.
Learning Objectives: Define and describe transitional foods and the relevance of the oral environment on this food category. Compare and contrast the differences between transitional food behaviors in the oral environment and on the
BENCHOP using IDDSI criteria. Summarize the role of transitional foods in management of texture-modified diets.
