Parents feel fulfilled when they feed their children healthy foods. Foods that are fresh, colorful and taste good. Foods sourced from quality ingredients. Food that are less processed and contain fiber and other nutrients that make our bodies work well. Foods that provide energy.
There is an important movement afloat in the nutrition world and a growing body of scientific evidence that supports the idea that children with feeding tubes should eat real food too. Tasty, nutrient-dense, colorful food. The same food that their parents eat. The same food that other children eat.
