My mother can only take liquids and has a delivery of IsoSource HN and Fibrsource HN. This is for G-Tubes/Pegs only. Its made by NestleHealthScience maybe they have other liquid nutrition's that can be taken orally.

There's Ensure and Boost, in the "Plus" versions for added nutrients.

I would ask his oncologist what she/he might recommend. Or contact the local Gilda's Club. In my experience they offer a wide variety of resources, and may know of some alternative to solid food.

Does that include pureed food? Or would that cause a problem as well?

Boost is suppose to be pretty good as in ensure. Is her terminal? Is he on hospice?
