Food Values and Nutrients
Easily digestible foods should be consumed to start the re-feeding process. Good examples include mashed potato, oatmeal, and macaroni & cheese. Eventually solid foods can be introduced.
High Fibre Foods should be regularly consumed to help regulate bowel movements and prevent constipation. Good examples are cereals, oats, whole-grains, lentils, fruit and vegetables.
Gas producing foods including: fizzy drinks, sweetened drinks, sweets and cabbage; can leave you feeling bloated and therefore should be limited.
Low sodium (salts) foods control fluid retention and constipation. Consume fresh foods and fresh poultry, fish & lean meat, rather than canned, smoked or processed meats.
Energy is needed for the body to function properly and for muscular function. Good sources of energy include: bananas, oats, jacket potato, fruit and vegetables.
Protein is essential for body growth and repair, and also supplies iron, B vitamins, zinc and magnesium which all help strengthen the immune system. High protein sources include meat, fish, poultry, milk, beans, pulses and eggs.
At the beginning of the re-feeding process you may experience some bloating which can be uncomfortable, but it is natural.
