Stand for Food

Stand for Food was the result of an 18-month journey during which I scoured medical journals for every study ever done stand for food ebookrelevant to enteral nutrition from 1950 to the present day. Shocked at that extreme contradiction between current medical recommendations regarding enteral nutrition and what the scientific data tells us, I decided to write this book. All of the scientific data on enteral nutrition stands strongly on the side of food. And so should we.

In this book, patients, parents, and caregivers will find the tools they need to have knowledgeable conversations with their medical providers about enteral formula and blenderized diet.
