Swallowing Difficulties: Thickened Liquids

Getting fluids down safely

Many people assume that drinking water and other regular liquids is simple. The truth is it can be very difficult for people with dysphagia.

Nestlé Nutrition thickened liquids follow the National Dysphagia Diet guidelines for nectar and honey consistencies.
