About Birds Eye Soft Meals
The range of Birds Eye Soft Meals, available exclusively at Alimento, offer meals for people living with swallowing or chewing difficulties. They are made using high quality ingredients, and can be prepared from frozen in the microwave and oven.
They are shaped using a French cooking technique to form timbales – which give them the appearance of a regular ready meal. The meals are aligned to IDDSI level 7 (Easy to Chew), but can be easily modified to Levels 4, 5 or 6:
· Modifying the meals to IDDSI Level 4 (Pureed)
· Modifying the meals to IDDSI Level 5 (Minced and Moist)
· Modifying the meals to IDDSI Level 6 (Soft and Bite-size)
Our easy online ordering system makes it simple to choose your meals and have them delivered quickly and conveniently at a time to suit you.
Birds Eye is the UK’s leading frozen food brand and prides itself on producing freshly frozen food loved and enjoyed by our customers, from deliciously tender Garden Peas, to the nation’s teatime favourite, Fish Fingers.
Almost 100 years ago (in 1924), Clarence Birdseye first pioneered the technology for fast freezing fish in New Jersey. Birdseye’s work soon became the global standard process for safe fast-freezing and is still in practice today.
The famous Fish Finger was first introduced in 1955, since then over 15 billion Fish Fingers have been enjoyed in the UK, helping families with convenient and healthy meal making up and down the country.
It’s not just fish, Birds Eye’s frozen food range includes vegetables, chicken, potato waffles, beef burgers, pies and pastries, as well as meat-free Green Cuisine and gluten-free options.
Our special soft meals offered exclusively via Alimento have been developed over several decades within the wider Birds Eye and Nomad Foods family.
