Success Stories…

Cassie K

“Since we have switched to a blenderized diet with Hilarie, our daughter is a whole new kid: healthier, throwing up WAY less, in a better mood and showing more interest in food.

I needed someone to do all the “busy work” of starting a blended diet. All the little things to look up: what blends best, what consistency, what is the caloric density, how much does the blend make, how to store it…is all figured out!”

Kearstyn S

“I was nervous that blending his food would be overwhelming and take too much time. I tried to switch on my own a few months prior and was completely overwhelmed. Hilarie took all the stress and confusion out of it. I could focus on slowly transitioning off Kate Farms and giving him healthy, real foods.

Since we made the switch he seems to be happier, constantly full of energy and is hitting milestones quicker. I would make this choice 1,000 times over.”

Crystal V

“Our biggest wins have been sharing meals together. Only tubie parents can understand the true excitement about eating the same meal as your child, or ordering something through the drive thru for the first time for them.

Everything is easily laid out that it doesn’t leave you with many questions, I highly recommend anyone on the fence about starting to just do it. It’s worth EVERY PENNY!”

Success Stories…

Victoria N

Blenderized tube feeding has made my bond with my daughter stronger because she is able to participate in eating the same foods as we do.

I feel so confident now blending home cooked meals and knowing that my daughter is getting a variety of foods – I actually enjoy blending different types of meals for her!”

Katie W

“Hilarie gave me my evenings back. I used to be up past midnight trying to come up with recipes that were high calorie, low volume for my twins with different needs. I feared the recipes would be too complicated or require too much prep, but instead found the recipes were easy to make with simple ingredients.

My son with growth issues gained over a pound in one month of working with Hilarie. That alone is well worth the money.”

Jessica P

“We feel like switching to a blenderized diet for our youngest son has made our family more cohesive. We are making his food with the same foods we feed our other children.

There is something so empowering and comforting about knowing even though he is tube fed, we are living life as closely to normal for him as possible! I couldn’t have done it without Hilarie’s help!”

What It’s Like to Work with Hilarie


Sarah H

Hilarie is extremely kind, patient and informative.

Our son has had extreme difficulty tolerating packaged foods/formulas. He was not growing or gaining weight despite extreme increases in calories and volume. Being able to blend real food that is full of nutrition has helped him not only feel better, but he is growing and steadily gaining weight!

Hilarie guides you through everything from getting the blender, picking recipes, troubleshooting, etc. You cannot put a price on your child’s health – it was definitely worth it! We are thankful we found her!”

Taylor H

Hilarie is so incredibly supportive of whatever our family needs.

We have needed to adjust our plan at times due to illness or being overly busy, and Hilarie made herself available during those times for whatever our family needed. She provided incredible resources and support to make blended feeds feel doable and achievable.

I would encourage anyone that is considering joining to do it and know it will be worth the investment of time and money.”

Rebekah Y

“Hilarie has been amazing to work with.

Tube feeding is such a big part of our lives right now and so having the kind of support she gives us is worth every penny.

What I have especially appreciated about her is that there have been absolutely no feelings of pressure or stress. She listens to our hopes and goals and takes the time to do what she can to help us get there.”

Nicole M

Nicole M

“I am equipped to give my child some of the best nourishment through the training Hilarie showed me.

She gave me one of the best tools you can give a special needs/medically fragile parent: the confidence and assurance that you can feed your child real food and it will be okay, worth it, and doable for anyone.

Hilarie was honestly the best thing I’ve ever spent my money on.”

Janet Y

“Hilarie takes the time to find what works for you. This journey is often difficult and can feel a bit lonely, but to have the support of someone who wants to take some of your stress & make your life easier, I can’t really describe how awesome that is.

She helped me come up with a plan for what we needed. I would encourage anyone, if you’re feeing overwhelmed, you want to feed your loved one good healthy food but the challenges are about to push you over the edge, try this. It is 100% worth the investment!

Alexis W

Hilarie has been nothing short of amazing.

I was worried it would make things “worse” for my daughter in terms of her growth by disrupting her “set” calories and fats on the formula. I invested anyway, almost as a “secondary” option, and she THRIVED. She’s gained more in the last four months than in the last year.

She truly helped me get what’s best for my girl to live her best quality of life.”

Libby K

Through working with Hilarie we have been given love and care and so much support. She takes the time to listen to my true thoughts and feelings about what is currently going on with my daughter, and she problem-solves to find solutions that will work for my daughter AND for me.

This support has meant the world to me, it makes me feel like I’m not so alone in this giant pool of programs and procedures and options.

Sharon M

Hilarie is amazing. I have gastroparesis and need high calorie puree recipes that are low in volume, fiber and fat to eat by mouth and heal my gut.

She answers all my questions and gives me so many suggestions. Hilarie is the key component that I need in my toolbox to be successful in making the transition from being fed 80% by jejunal feeding tube to going back to eating 100% by mouth.”

Vicmaris G

Hilarie is focused on making sure you feel safe and secure with the process.

There is always an answer provided to make this process easier. It feels stress free, you feel like someone is listening and will find a solution for the problem on hand. The platform has many options to help you explore blended food recipes and it makes me feel great knowing I am providing my daughter a real meal.

Jennifer M

My son has changed completely on a blended diet!

I was scared at first because you are so used to the way things are. My son was vomiting a lot and we thought it was volume related, but we realized it was actually the formula he was not tolerating.

We now have switched to real food and have had no issues. He has colour back, is gaining weight, is so much stronger in his rehab and he has had tons of compliments wanting to know what we are doing.”

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


Blended Tube Feeding Made Simple takes away the big learning curve and makes it easy for you to switch to a blended diet. All the busy work is done for you!

I’ll show you how to be efficient — most families spend just a few hours a week to make 7-10 days worth of meals.

Plus, this doesn’t have to be an all-or-nothing approach! Most people do not eat home cooked meals 100% of the time, and a blended tube feeding diet doesn’t have to be that way either! There are many real food commercial products you can use to simplify your journey.

You may even find you have time back when you’re no longer dealing with endless digestive issues and extended feeding times!

In my experience, a blenderized diet can actually be more “nutritionally complete” than many people get by mouth!

Inside, you’ll have access to a large database of well-balanced recipes that meet a variety of nutrition needs, and I’ll show you how to use them.

By blending balanced meals and using foods from all food groups, you not only get all the vitamins and minerals you need from their original source, but also the added benefits of natural fiber, antioxidants and phytonutrients not found in most commercial formulas.

Yes! Research has shown the high viscosity (thickness) of a blended diet can help to improve digestive issues like reflux and vomiting. Most people I have worked with see improvements in their digestive problems in just a few weeks. Many families also report improvements in bowel regularity, as well as improved energy levels!

Yes! This is very common. You’ll have access to a 40+ recipes that provide lots of calories in a low volume of food (1.5 calorie per mL).

Plus, in my experience people who switch to a blended diet are often able to handle more volume, so you may even find you don’t need to stick with high calorie, low volume meals long term.


Blended Tube Feeding Made Simple fills in the gaps and offers extra support that works alongside what your medical team provides. The recipes are designed so you can think about this just like formula, which makes getting started so much easier.

Your team can relax, knowing they won’t be overwhelmed with blending-related questions, and everyone is reassured calorie and nutrient needs are met without all the guesswork.

Teamwork is key! There’s a whole section dedicated to helping you get your team on board. Inside, you’ll find a handy guide to help you prepare for pushback, including some common concerns and why they may not actually have to be concerns, all backed by research.

You’ll also find a letter you can send to your team explaining what’s included so they feel reassured you’re doing this safely!

Blended Tube Feeding Made Simple is currently appropriate for anyone over 1 year of age.
