    Eggs, oatmeal, baked sweet potatoes, baked white potatoes,soups, hot cereals, milkshakes (milk and frozen fruit) yogurt... You have probably thought of all these, but I hope she will eat. Has she said what she wants?

    My dad needed a soft diet because he had trouble swallowing. He never chewed his food like he should've. When I was up north a few years back I fixed him some refried beans (non-fat) out of a can, the brand with the dog. I browned up some ground beef and added it to the the refried beans. Also rice on the side if he wanted. Fixed up some toast with a little garlic butter. He cleaned it up. We had leftovers so for breakfast I asked him if he wanted oatmeal but he wanted the leftovers and some scrambled eggs with it and toast. He had everything he needed and wanted my stepmother to fix it a couple times a week. He had a little more energy and wasn't going hungry. Dad had what they called a weak epiglottis which would make him choke when he ate solids. he was getting afraid to eat more solid foods.

    Does she like tuna? Salmon? Steamed or made into tuna fish salad for a sandwich, or salmon burgers? Shrimp? Whatever she will eat. Sometimes the problem is chewing, swallowing, or digesting. Ice cold supplements are stomach chilling and can be uncomfortable.. How about quiches- warm or cool? Omlets? You can get some baby foods mixed in, and minced veggies or meat. Rice, potatoes, breads, and pastas are filling but very little nutrition, so limit them. Is cheese an option? Grilled cheese sandwich? Watch for lactose intolerance- a simple treatment with lactaid or chewable generics. The taste varies on the chewable brands so try a few. I prefer the CVS. Soups can contain nutrition but use higher protein broths rather than water. Smaller more frequent meals are better. Creamed chicken? She may have many old home comfort food recipes she'd like to adapt.

    If you try the Greek yogurt, look for Fage 2% (pronounced Fa-yeh.) It's in the health food section of my Kroger, not with the regular yogurts like Dannon. I don't like yogurt, until my mom had me try this. She said it's the only good one. It's fabulous to me because I can't believe it's yogurt, and the blueberry one is my favorite.

    Might try this:

    Impossible Pie

    All the ingredients are mixed together and poured into a pie tin, but when it cooks it forms its own crust with filling This has a coconut vanilla taste like a coconut cream pie


    2 cups milk
    1 cup shredded coconut
    4 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/2 cup all purpose flour
    8 Tablespoon butter
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

    Place milk, coconut, eggs, vanilla, flour, butter and sugar in blender. Mix well.
    Pour into a greased and floured pie plate. Sprinkle nutmeg on top.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minute
