The holidays are a wonderful time of year, and conjure up memories of past gatherings with family and friends. Images of warmly lit homes, crackling fires, laughter, songs and the aromas that swirl about can trigger such feelings of good will. It’s a time to come together and eat.
But, what if eating is a struggle, a battle, or even not in the picture at all?
If a family member, whether adult or child has experienced dysphagia or is on a special diet, some considerations and preparations may need to be made in advance. There is no reason for the individual experiencing a feeding difficulty or dysphagia be excluded of the joy of holiday food gatherings along with everyone else!
