Susie Redfern developed Milestones Magazine to help individuals with disabilities and their families achieve and celebrate events and milestones in their lives.

It’s not that simple,

however, for people who have dental or medical conditions

that make it difficult, if not impossible, to chew, swallow,

or digest food like the rest of us. This presents various

complications for these individuals. At the top of the list is

malnourishment and its effects. Feeding tubes, for example,

can clog up and not easily deliver the sustenance a growing

child (or an adult) requires.

So, what’s a parent to do? Julie and Tony Bombacino found

themselves in this predicament. Like many parents, when they

weren’t satisfied with the solutions for their son, they came up

with their own, which they named Real Food Blends.

Real Food Blends,

as the name says, is blended with real foods, without corn

syrup, preservatives, fillers, or a need for refrigeration.

The company provides 6 meal varieties for children and

adults. Five of the 6 meal choices include a form of meat or

dairy (namely beef, turkey, chicken, fish, eggs), as well as a

vegetable and/or fruit (peaches, carrots, squash, apples,

zucchini, green beans), and a starch (potatoes, oats, brown

rice). One meal choice is vegetarian (quinona, kale, hemp).

The product is covered by many insurance plans, and is

available without a prescription.
