Calculating input

  1. 0 Hello!
    I need your help with one silly question. When we calculate patient's daily input of fluids do we need somehow to include in our calculation non-liquid foods, like snacks etc or just liquid things only?
    Thank you

    Fluids only, such as jello, popsicles, ice cream, sodas, water, etc.

    How would you calculate a fluid intake for a solid food?

    So, for example if there is a question what gives you certain foods you should choose only the liquids ones, is that right?
