As the only feed in the UK&I to contain food-derived ingredients*, Compleat® paediatric is often considered by dietitians for families wanting to explore or who are following a blended diet. It can be used flexibly:

  • As a base to homemade blends to provide a known nutritional value and reduce the amount of work that goes into preparing blends. Recipes are available for dietitians to provide to their patients
  • As a convenient option to use alongside a blended diet. Particularly helpful for days out, school or holidays
  • As a bridge or stepping stone for those wanting to explore blended diets. The BDA Practice Toolkit The Use of Blended Diet with Enteral Feeding Tubes (2021) can be viewed here
