Real Meals Modified

Welcome to
Real Meals Modified!

Our focus is real food for modified texture diets

Changing diets is overwhelming. Your doctor or speech therapist prescribed a modified diet, and you have no idea where to start. We’re here to help!

Real Meals Modified follows international standards which help manage dysphagia diets. The International Dysphagia Diet Standardization Initiative (IDDSI) has seven levels that regulate testing methods for both liquids and solids. Our recipes are separated into these seven levels to make searching for the perfect recipe easy!

Check out our recipes at every texture level

We use the International Dysphagia Diet Standardization Initiative (IDDSI) levels to classify the texture of each recipe.

Use the button below to browse all our recipes, or navigate to the top menu and use the dropdown to select the texture you’re looking for.

Are you new to IDDSI or dysphagia?

Take a peek at our Get Started page!

We have information about getting your dysphagia diagnosis, dealing with the language of modified diets, and more about our mission.

Our Blog page is where we share helpful information about cooking and living with dysphagia.

IDDSI itself is an invaluable resource, head over to the IDDSI homepage to get the latest information and educational handouts.
