Full Liquid


 

Purpose

The full liquid diet is often used as a step between a clear liquid diet and a regular diet, for example, after surgery or fasting. It may also be used after certain procedures, such as jaw wiring. This diet may also be appropriate for patients who have swallowing and chewing problems.

Nutrition Facts

The full liquid diet is low in iron, vitamin B12, vitamin A, and thiamine. It should not be used for a long period of time unless vitamins, iron, or liquid nutritional supplements are added. This diet has 1800 mg of calcium, so extra calcium is not needed.
