Exploring Medically Tailored Meals

Understanding Medically Tailored Meals with Seattle Sutton's

Medically tailored meals are specially prepared meals that are designed to meet the specific dietary needs of individuals with certain medical conditions. These meals are carefully crafted to provide the right balance of nutrients, vitamins and minerals that are necessary for symptom management, improved disease outcomes, and optimal health.

Oftentimes, these meals are prescribed by healthcare professionals as part of a comprehensive treatment plan to manage and improve health conditions that require specific nutrition intervention. Meals are made with fresh, high-quality ingredients to ensure both taste and nutrition and meet specific nutrition guidelines for different conditions. 

What are Medically Tailored Meals

Seattle Sutton’s Approach to Healthy Eating

Seattle Sutton’s Healthy Eating is a comprehensive program that focuses on providing healthy, balanced meals. The program takes a science-based nutrition approach with tailoring meals to meet the nutrition guidelines from the American Heart AssociationAmerican Diabetes Association, and the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. By following these guidelines and the basics of the Mediterranean Diet our meals can be used in the nutritional management for a variety of chronic health conditions such as:

  • Cancer
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Chronic Kidney Disease/End-Stage Renal Disease
  • COPD
