    Breakfast for swallowing problems.
    Anyone got any good ideas. I had been giving him ready been with thickened but that seems to result in choking. Can't give him eggs everyday, enough problems keeping his gut moving.
    Ideas please?

    we have porridge, at the moment we are on Wheetabix soaked in milk, like baby Farleys. we at the weekend have black pudding and chopped tomatoes, and bread with crusts off.

    Yes eggs bad enough but B likes brown sauce which helps

    Porridge, wheetabix or yoghurt are all good. My husband is on a pulverised diet because of his swallowing and manages all three of the above with no problems. Put honey on his porridge and it goes down in no time.:)

    Dad has weetabix with honey and whole milk followed by toast and marmalade (crusts off). No choking until he has a cup of tea. Also may have skinless sausages x

    Toast definitely a no, was having porridge but managed to get the minutes bit stuck in his throat and choke.
    Thank you people.Am going to try cereal soaked and sometimes the skinless sausages. Tinned tomatoes I already use a fair bit. Breakfasts seem to be most troublesome although I give him an hour or so before I get it.

    I tend to over run the porridge so suppose it goes like gruel

    Have you tried the very fine oatmeal bemused? It takes a bit longer to cook but may be smoother. Actually the health food shop may have different kinds of cereal that can be cooked to make a smooth sort of er, porridge. Nothing springs to mind but it may be worth trying.

    thank you patsy, maybe worth a try. We have very fine ground oatmeal but that doesn't stop the choking. Maybe I will have to cut out breakfast, later in the day he seems better

    My aunt thoroughly enjoys her egg and bacon breakfast, it's the baby food one out of a jar but, according to my cousin, it's tastes great with a little salt and pepper added! Similarly with the beef casserole version which gets a little mustard to widen the flavour.

    Rice flakes should be in the baby food isle of any supermarket. They are first food for babies before fruit and veg pureed.

    Lots of things I would never think of. Try them all one after another. Get rid of a lifetimes thoughts about what constitutes ' breakfast'!

    I thought of you this morning. I Tipped out and milked my shreddies and the phone rang..... Shreddies with milk go very soft and mushy very quickly!
