NEW WEBINAR! Celebrating the Holidays with Dysphagia

Thursday, December 2 at 8am Pacific (11am Eastern)

IDDSI and the National Foundation of Swallowing Disorders present a special webinar focusing on patients with dysphagia and what they may face during the holiday season.

NFOSD Board Member and nutritionist, Laura Michael, will bring her industry and caregiver experience in diet modification, and share tips on how to safely and joyfully celebrate the holidays when you have swallowing problems, offer tools to enjoy food and social gatherings, and how to navigate the social and emotional aspects of the holidays, while incorporating the IDDSI standards into holiday celebrations.

As a bonus, Chef Diane Wolff of Essential Puree has generously offered to share a free, downloadable copy of her “Purees of Fall: The Holiday Meal” PDF with our community that includes some excellent holiday recipes that may be safe (and delicious!) for those who modify their food consistency to a puree.

Additionally, if you would like Diane Wolff’s two books in the Purees of Fall series, Game Day and Snacks and Shakes, please email her at and she will email you the links to download copies.
