Puréed food

Puréed foods are prepared by mashing, grinding, or chopping food until a very fine, smooth texture is achieved. Mashed potatoes, squash, and pumpkin pie filling are examples of puréed foods. Although we all enjoy puréed foods as a part of a healthy diet, puréed diets may be recommended for frail older adults who have chewing and/or swallowing problems.
