Adapt the texture of food according to the intensity of mucositis.
  • When the mucositis is mild, eat soft textured or easy to chew foods (stews, soups, purées, caramel puddings, soft cheeses, ripe and sweet fruits, overcooked and brothy pasta and rice dishes, very tender fish, and meats). Cook foods until they are soft and garnish them with sauces, broths or juices, especially drier foods, to help swallowing. Cut ingredients into small pieces and chew slowly.
  • In severe cases, it may be necessary to blend food to obtain an easy-to-swallow texture.
