GrTea you know I love ya...LOL.......All sources recommend room slightly above or below room temperature foods for they can't manipulate the hot/cold food around in their mouth and in their attempt to move the food they aspirate.....or if there is decreased sensation the danger is burning/scalding the oral cavity/mucous membranes. http://www.nursingtimes.net/feeding-...201029.article http://www.brainline.org/content/201...y_pageall.html
