Using Compleat® Paediatric as part of a blenderised diet

Using Compleat® paediatric as an ingredient in blended home-cooked meals can help to make meal planning easier. Compleat® paediatric is nutritionally complete in terms of adequate calories, protein, fats, minerals and vitamins, which can help make sure a child gets the nutrients they need.


Our professional chef has worked with dietitians over the years to develop easy to prepare blenderised recipes using Compleat® paediatric as a base. A range of meals and snacks have been adapted to pass easily through a feeding tube (size 14 Fr). The recipes can be used to add variety as part of a healthy and balanced diet for children. 


 'Always consult your dietitian or healthcare professional before starting any homemade blended diets and before you follow these recipes.'

Please note these videos were recorded during lockdown by Gary himself, and he references 'Isosource Junior Mix' which is the former product name of Compleat® paediatric. The recipe and nutritional profile of the product did not change, so Compleat® paediatric can substitute Isosource Junior Mix like for like. Please refer to the recipe cards linked above for the full recipes.
