Great recipes but looking for recipes with low or nil sugar as I am recovering from tongue cancer and sugar is a no-no.

Response from Natural Tube Feeding- Thank you very much for your review Paul! Yes, some of the recipes have natural sweeteners (a little honey or maple syrup) so if you're avoiding sugar this would be disappointing. For anyone reading this who is also looking to avoid honey or maple syrup, you can omit those ingredients, or substitute a nut or seed butter in order to keep up the calories in those recipes. Please note, none of the savoury recipes include honey or maple syrup so the majority of the recipes would require no adjustments.

Excellent resource. I've been blending for my 2 year old for about 18mo. I was struggling with getting enough calories, it was always a stretch to get 27cal per oz, it was usually too thick and a combination of over 10 foods. I love the simple recipes in your book and they smell really good! It's meals I would actually eat and I have served them to my other children. And Benjamin is tolerating very well. Thanks you!

As a new(ish!) tubie mum, my son is medically complex and was failure to thrive even WITH his tube He wasn’t gaining, Actually he was slipping on formula - he was 20.0kg at almost 10years old. I bought the Natural Tube Feeding Recipe Book after watching Claire on Insta for a little while. I can confirm during this short time my son has gained just over 1kg which is an absolute miracle in itself. So happy and will continue nourishing my son with real foods. This book and watching Claire’s videos has really made it much less daunting and scary. I can’t wait to maybe see some chubby cheeks one day in the future! Thankyou so much Claire x

This book has been such an amazing help and has boosted my confidence with feeding my son a blended diet. All recipes are easy to make and have just a few simple ingredients. Being from the UK my only difficulty has been trying to translate the ‘cup’ terminology, so like a previous review suggests, the next time it would be good to have some metric weights for those other people around the world. Thank you and I am looking forward to the next one!

Response from Natural Tube Feeding- Thank you for this excellent suggestion! I have updated the book to include metric gram weights where appropriate and there is a cups/tsp/tbsp to milliliters conversion table. I hope this helps my UK customers!

3 reasons I'm really happy with this book- 1) It's proof that tube fed people can have yummy food too 2) Ingredients are super simple, nothing weird or hard to find 3) the nutrition info means that I know how many calories my son is getting. No guessing, no worrying. Oh and our team dietitian is happy with it too.

Our son's dietitian recommended this book and I am very glad that she did. Our hospital didn't have any recipes to give us and basically a 2 page handout that hardly gave us any information. I'm so grateful for this book because it helped us see how to make blended meals properly and gave us confidence to do our own thing once we got the hang of it.

I bought this book to help streamline my daughters blends. My goal is to batch cook for one month and freeze. Although I have not made any of the recipes as of yet (bought just a few days ago) they all look healthy and have a beautiful color picture of each meal.
I appreciate the fact that these meals are designed by a dietitian. I feel time was taken to create a well balanced meal plan.
I like that nutrition breakdown that follows each meal. I also like each page being just one recipe instead of multiple recipes on a page. One last thing I think is great is that some recipes include alternative ingredients for things some may be allergic to.
The two things I think needs improvement on it would be to have 7 meals in each category instead of only 5 in each. This way it would follow a more traditional menu plan. The other is the price. I understand people worked very hard to create a book and they should be paid for their time. However it is a digital download and not a hands on book. The high price may prevent some people from purchasing this. I believe 25.00 is a more reasonable price.
Overall I give it 5 stars! Hope others enjoy it as much as I do.

Excellent recipes. I have tried most all of the recipes offered and they have worked out great. My husband has esophageal cancer and tube feeds. I have had no problem preparing nor has he had any problem with his tube feeding. Thank you.

Very easy to make recipes, and lots of variety. Especially helpful is the calorie amount for each recipe. Recommended!

We are just starting our transition to home based blends but I am so thrilled that I have this guide with easy and nutritious meals I can provide for my son. I have been doubling the recipes, portioning them out and freezing. This is working brilliantly, thank you Claire 💕

We’re really pleased with the ebook. The recipes are great for our toddler who is exclusively tube fed through a 14Fr mic-key gtube. We use the same mix over two days and it keeps fresh in the fridge. Everything blends really nicely and we’ve enjoyed tasting his food too. It’s easier if you have an American (cups) measurer. Maybe a future version could include metric weights for non American/Canadian families?!
We’re thrilled, thank you for making food prep easy and tasty!!

Book is fine, but o think your price is way to high, we have enough expenses to begin with. I’ve bought digital books before that included a mailed paper version and they were in the $9.00 to $12.00 range.

Response from Natural Tube Feeding- Thank you for your feedback. The recipes and tube feeding information in the book are developed by an expert clinical dietitian and includes detailed nutritional analysis. This contributes to the price. Since you are not completely satisfied with your purchase, you are entitled to a refund as per our satisfaction guarantee.

This book has helped our family immensely. There aren't a lot of resources for people who want a blended diet. I'm very grateful we found this book.
