GentleFoods® creates familiar, hygienic, and nutritious moulded food (pureed & soft/minced) that stimulates the appetite with the way it looks, tastes, and smells; thereby, bringing the joy of food back to the people with swallowing difficulties.
GentleFoods® believes that the food one enjoyed must always remain the food they enjoy despite the change in their physical condition.
As we prepare blended diets for people with swallowing difficulties, we always keep in mind how GentleFoods® benefits the caregiver as well. We understand the lack of time and know-hows to prepare the blended diet, therefore, our meals, snacks/desserts, and pre-thickened drinks help make life easier for the caregiver at the same time remembering the person who will eat it.
We are different because we give...
- Meaning: Putting joy into meal times again
- Emotion: Reclaiming the intimacy with food and people
- Memory: The past is preserved rather than discovered
- Value: Risk-free, Nutritional, Convenient, Time Saving
Our commitment to you: To give back a little of what life has taken out
- Give back time to the caregiver
- Give back nourishment by engaging the appetite
- Give back the joy of eating with the loved ones
- Give back the memories of eating familiar food with its taste, smell, and shape
Imagine, not being able
to eat the foods you enjoy.
The idea for GentleFoods® began a few years ago with a poignant question- ‘What happens if one day a person cannot eat?’ This question was lingering in the minds of both founders Yiru and Jeannie. The issue stems from Singapore and Asia’s ageing population and the increase in people with swallowing difficulties due to medical conditions. There are limited food options and many of them are resigned to porridge. Researching, searching and perfecting an answer saw the rest of the journey to bring GentleFoods® into reality.
GentleFoods® creates moulded puréed food that is familiar, safe and nutritious that helps in stimulating the appetite with the way it looks, tastes and smells, bringing the joy of food back into the lives of people with swallowing difficulties. With continuous inputs from hospitals, clinicians, our very own team of speech therapists, dieticians and chefs to perfect the food that would be both nutritious and appetising. The nurturance, thoughtfulness and committed culture at GentleFoods® aims to bring back the positive and joyous relationship with food.
