MoonDragon's Nutrition Information: Diets
SOFT DIET




PURPOSE


The Soft Diet is considered as a progression from the full liquid diet to a general diet. The soft diet may also be used for a post-operative patient who is too ill to tolerate a general diet. The soft diet may also be needed for patients who are too weak or whose dentition is too poor to handle all foods on a general diet.




DESCRIPTION


Food tolerances vary with individuals. Tender foods (not ground or pureed) are used unless the individual needs additional modifications to the diet. Most raw fruits and vegetables and course breads and cereals are eliminated.






BASIC INFORMATION


Fried foods and highly seasoned foods may cause discomfort for the immobile or post-operative patient.




NUTRITIONAL ADEQUACY


This diet will be adequate if foods from each of the basic food groups are eaten daily.
