Transitional Foods: Updates on Their Behavior, Use, and Benefits in both the Adult & Pediatric Populations

Reva Barewal, DDS, MS

What are transitional foods? We will explore the growing scientific evidence on uses, benefits and limitations for adult and pediatric patients with dysphagia. The IDDSI testing method will be contrasted with observed dissolution patterns in the mouth. Expanding our knowledge of transitional foods will provide a more person-centered approach in management of the texture modified diet.
Objective

By the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Define and describe transitional foods and the relevance of the oral environment to this food category.
  2. Compare and contrast the differences between transitional food behaviors in the oral environment and on bench top, utilizing IDDSI testing criteria.
  3. Summarize the role of transitional foods in management of the texture modified diet.
