Blenderized formulas may be suitable for adults and children who have difficulty digesting a standard formula, or for those who will require a tube-feeding for a long period of time.
Sit or lie at a 30 degree angle (about the height of two pillows) during a feeding and for 30 to 60 minutes after a feeding to help prevent nausea or reflux.
It is also very important to follow specific techniques during handling, preparation, storage and usage of the formula because of the risk for bacterial contamination from the formula ingredients or containers.
A nutritionally complete formula such as Compleat Pediatric Reduced Calorie may be used as a base for a blenderized diet.
