We show metric measures in our recipes, but you can use our conversion tables if needed.
Our featured recipes are kindly provided by people with or affected by MND, health and social care professionals, and celebrity chefs Dan Doherty, Prue Leith and Levi Roots.
We have listed quick and easy dishes, as well as meals for celebrations. You may have different needs to someone else with MND, so read each recipe through to see if it’s likely to work for you. We hope you enjoy trying some of the ideas here and find a new favourite.
All of these recipes are from our Eating and drinking guide at: www.mndassociation.org/eating which can be ordered in print from our MND Connect helpline:
If you have any problems with swallowing, ask your GP or wider health and social care team for a referral to a dietitian, and a speech and language therapist.
If you have swallowing difficulties, health and social care professionals may talk about levels of consistency. These levels describe the texture of foods and drinks.
Consistency levels are usually based on the IDDSI framework (in full, this means the International Dysphagia Diet Standardisation Initiative).
Drinks are measured from levels 0 – 4, while foods are measured from levels 3 – 7.
Your speech and language therapist, your dietitian or other relevant specialist will assess your needs and advise which level is right for you.
The recipes in this web app can be adapted to different levels of consistency. Ask the professionals supporting you for guidance.
