Intake and Output Question

  1. 0 Could someone please explain to me whether or not you count pudding as an intake? I learned once that if it melts, it is to be counted as a fl oz. So does pudding count? The reason I ask this is because on a test question, we were to add up the total of fl oz. in mLs. and I believe I did add pudding to the total. Thanks sooo much!

    Looks like the consensus is no (link) pudding is not counted as intake. Good question, though!

    On a liquid diet, pudding is considered a liquid, no?

    Just like Jello is ok for a clear liquid diet.

    I think in practice it may not be counted but on a test I would have measured it as intake. I think I'm going to ask my professor this when I see what she says.

    Pudding does not count. It is not liquid at room temp. I wish we could count what someone can drink through a straw as liquids!

    At my clinical site, pudding IS intake. and so is geltain (Jello). This is like how ice cream is considered intake.
    But it might be different wherever you go???
