Aspiration (inhaling) of food into the lungs as a result of inadequate chewing or swallowing is recognised as a major contributor to respiratory infections and pneumonia. People with dysphagia often require texture-modified meals to ensure they can continue to consume meals safely without aspirating. A speech pathologist will assess someone with swallowing difficulties to determine which of the four diets will be most suitable to optimise intake and safe swallowing.
The risk of weight loss and malnutrition are often heightened when on a texture-modified diet due to the following factors:
- Early fatigue at meal times.
- Monotony of menu items.
- Diets too low in energy and/or protein.
- Requiring assistance with meals.
- Unappealing meals being served.
