The MIT-E spoon (for Mixed Texture-Eating) was invented by three speech language pathologists to address the challenges of swallowing mixed consistencies such as soup, milk and cereal and fruit cocktail. The idea for the MIT-E spoon came to them after witnessing countless patients develop aversions to traditional and less appealing recommendations of pureeing juicy fruits, thickening broth and restricting mixed consistency foods all together.

This FEES (Fiberoptic Endoscopic Evaluation of Swallowing Study) shows aspiration resolving on a mixed consistency (peaches) using MIT-E spoon. While the MIT-E spoon was intended for this purpose, and to limit diet restrictions, elimination of aspiration and/or penetration is not guaranteed. As always, a through assessment should be conducted by an SLP prior to issuing the MIT-E spoon.
