Delicious dishes in a texture that's right for you
At Wiltshire Farm Foods, we believe everyone should look forward to mealtimes regardless of their needs. That’s why we are so proud of our award-winning Softer Foods range that includes meals across three different textures to help those living with chewing or swallowing difficulties eat with ease and confidence.
Following a soft food diet can be challenging; finding foods to eat that are easy to digest is tricky and home blending meals often takes a lot of time and effort. Our meals are the effortless way to enjoy good food and with over 85 options to choose from, we’ve got your breakfast, lunch and dinner covered!
Our Softer Foods range is available in three different textures:
Level 4 - Purée Meals
Main dishes, snacks and desserts in a consistently smooth and safe texture, still thick enough to eat with a fork and created so you can enjoy the distinct flavours of each element. If you have a smaller appetite, we also have our Purée Petite range, the same great meals but in a more manageable portion.
Level 5 - Minced Meals
Minced ready meals offering tasty, appealing dishes that require little to no chewing but with a more varied texture than our puréed range of dishes. In this range you’ll find comforting dishes such as casseroles and stews served with mashed sides.
Level 6 - Soft & Bite-Sized
Soft & Bite-Sized ready meals featuring soft and manageable pieces of meat, fish and vegetables in rich and delicious sauces. Accompaniments are diced or mashed for ease of enjoyment.
Good food for every meal of the day
Discover our Puréed Sandwiches & Snacks, perfect for that little something in between.
Our service provides a range of benefits:
Our meals are made in line with the latest IDDSI guidance for texture modified meals, ensuring that they meet a safe consistency for those requiring a Softer Foods diet. Despite best efforts, it can be challenging to achieve the right food consistency at home, therefore our ready prepared meals make for a safer alternative.
Easier to chew:
This range is also ideal for those who would benefit from their foods being a little more tender and easier to chew, perhaps due to dental surgery or dentures.
They're easy and convenient:
Our dishes require no preparation as they come pre-prepared and can be cooked straight from frozen in the oven or microwave, saving you lots of time, effort and washing up.
They're tasty and nutritious:
Our talented chefs work hard with our dietitian Emily and Maia, to ensure the nutritional content of all our dishes are well-balanced, at the same time as being delicious. We design our meals to look as appetising as possible using our special moulds helping you to enjoy mealtimes more.
Flexible Portion Options:
Our Purée Petite meals offer smaller, more manageable portion sizes, for those with swallowing difficulties whose appetite might not be what it once was.
Special Dietary Requirements
There are some tasty vegetarian options in our range and we also cater for gluten free diets too, with many dishes in the range being free from gluten.
To help you find meals that are right for you, we use dietary symbols in our brochures and on our Wiltshire Farm Foods website to indicate which meals are suitable for vegetarian and gluten free diets, as shown on the right.
If you have swallowing difficulties and are unsure of which level you need then please seek medical advice, a Speech and Language Therapist will be able to diagnose the appropriate texture level for you.
