Self-managing my nephew Matthew’s NDIS Funding Plan means I deal with lots of service providers. TCF is a shining light and a lifesaver for Matt. We’ll be forever grateful.

Susie Elelman AM | NSW | Legal guardian to Matthew born with severe cerebal palsy

The food products from TCF are exceptional in every way. They boast incredible flavour, perfect texture, excellent nutritional content, reduced preparation time, and a visually appealing presentation. Most importantly, my twin boys, who have cerebral palsy, are finally gaining weight!

Despite consulting various dietitians who recommended adding PaediaSure to their drinks and meals, we never saw the desired results. However, TCF’s products have truly made a difference.

My heartfelt thanks and appreciation go out to the TCF team – you can’t imagine how much you’ve transformed our lives.

Lee | QLD | Carer to her twins born with cerebral palsy

For over two years now, Ann has relied on our texture modified food to ensure her daughter Katrina’s safety and enjoyment at mealtime. With dysphagia requiring all Katrina’s meals to be pureed for safe swallowing, our products have been a game-changer. Read Ann and Katrina’s journey.

It all began when Katrina faced Aspiration Pneumonia and a Speech Therapist recommended Textured Concept Foods during her hospital stay. Not only did she relish their pureed meals, but her health significantly improved, with stable weight and zero incidents of pneumonia since.

For Katrina, every meal is now a joyful anticipation, free from the fear of choking or illness. And having sampled the meals myself, I’m thoroughly impressed by their taste, appearance, and quality.

Even during our extended stay in WA, TCF remained our trusted choice, providing consistency and peace of mind. Trying alternatives proved disappointing, with subpar taste and quality leading to aspiration incidents.

With Textured Concept Foods, mealtime isn’t just about sustenance – it’s about safety, satisfaction, and peace of mind for Katrina and our entire family.

PS Katrina has tried all your products and loves every one of them (except the chocolate products as she doesn’t like chocolate)!
