Hi all, my elderly Dad is out of hospital and has been put on a 'mince and moist' diet because of problems swallowing. Does anyone have any recipe suggestions? Otherwise he will be bored of endless cottage pie/fish pie. I'm happy to have mixture of stuff I can prepare and ready meals the carer can heat up. Thank you! I'll also post this in the elderly parents topic.

Make sure any pasta/rice/couscous is cooked to almost soggy. Like you might for a little one. I have dysphagia and it's a common misconception that pasta and rice are somehow easy to swallow. The same with mashed/baked potatoes. I need to have them in a more puree-like state (so lots of milk & butter). Anything too thick and gloopy can also get stuck when the swallow reflex is weak.
