A few months ago, my 82 year old mum with advanced dementia and diabetes was hospitalized due to severe pneumonia and diagnosed with dysphagia. Since then, she has to be on pureed diet and thickened fluids.
Preparing food for my mum is a whole day affair. It was difficult, especially when it takes 1 to 2 hours to feed her. As a result, my helper and I had lesser time for other errands.
We were introduced to Health Food Matters by nurses whom we spoke to about our stress of coping with her needs.
We are glad and thankful to Health Food Matters, especially when mum has medical appointments. The ready-to-eat blended food is convenient and easy to prepare. Besides, the uniform texture and wide variety of Delisoft Easy Meals are good for mum as it's safer to swallow. The most importantly, the nutrients that HFM food products delivers, especially Sunfiber. It can be added to soup, porridge, beverage and water to help get her fiber, not just from vegetables.
My mum always look forward to her favourite foods such as Garlic Coriander Fish, Black Pepper Chicken, Bread Porridge and Protein Mousse Dessert.
Thank you, Health Food Matters. You have 'SAVED' us in our distress.

Due to the radiotherapy treatment that my father went through many years ago, his jaw was unable to open wide and this has restricted his food options to be soft and easy to chew. So when I came across Health Food Matters through a Google search, I decided to try ordering from them.
Reading from the website about how the Delisoft Easy Meals were developed by their team of healthcare experts, chef and food technologist, learning they are nutritious and can be prepared quickly through microwave heating made me very keen to try them out as I'm concerned my father was not receiving the nutrition he needed.
I was amazed by the good variety of food options available, with many fish dishes provided which my dad liked. It was also very helpful that the texture could be customized to make it more suitable for my father to eat, be it blended, finely minced or chopped.
After ordering, the food could be delivered within 2-3 working days, which was quite fast. My father finds the meals soft enough and nutritious for him to eat. The meals are easy to prepare, by just heating them up in the microwave.
Thanks to Health Food Matters, I believe my dad's health will improve as he continues to eat these nutritious meals. I look forward to the new dishes created in future.

When the speech therapist diagnosed that my mother is having dysphagia and she needs to take blended food, I searched the internet to look for methods to prepare the blended food and chanced upon Health Food Matters’ website. I found that they provide ready-made healthy blended food for the elderly with swallowing problem. After ordering the blended fish dish from the Delisoft Easy Meals menu for my mother to try, I have since being ordering the blended meals for my mother. Her favourite dishes are blended Sweet and Sour Fish and Fish with Sweet Plum Dipping Sauce.
The Delisoft Easy Meals are easy to prepare and can be ordered online easily. Staff at Health Food Matters are also very understanding and efficient, to ensure my requests are taken care of. I am glad that Health Food Matters caters to the increasing needs of our aging population, by providing elderly and their caregivers with more choice of meals. Thank you Health Food Matters.
From L K NgSince my 92 year old mother was discharged from a rehab centre in Dec last year, we have been giving her the Special Pantry food from your company. Although she cannot swallow the normal food, she is able to eat the food bought from your company. In particular, she enjoyed the Premium Seafoods such as the threadfins and scallops. It is a pity that your company has decided to stop importing them.
