Infants are not the only ones who have to adjust to solid food. Sometimes toddlers are injured and are compelled to receive food through a tube. As these things are dangerous to insert, it is essential to have a doctor and dietitian work with you. Proper use requires training, even if just to avoid harming the more delicate body of a toddler. The food used to feed young kids is a bit different from what is fed to adults, often containing a little more sugar among other things.

Different sizes of toddler tube are available from a website that sells reusable and single-use medical devices. It is not particularly high tech if not connected to an automated feeder, but still has to be the right size for a body and the viscosity of the food. A thicker drink needs to be fed by a larger tube or else pushed in by an auto dispenser.
