Necessity Is the Mother of Invention: Real Food Blends

When Julie Bombacino, an Indiana mom of two, found out that her 6-month old baby boy—AJ—would need a feeding tube for the rest of her life, she didn’t just sit idle. She began researching and discovered quickly that nearly half-a-million people in the US alone rely on feeding tubes. The tube formulas made her son very sick, and Bombacino knew there had to be a better way. With the determination that only a mother can have, she began to experiment with real foods, pureeing things like carrots, chicken and sweet potatoes, to put in his tube. It wasn’t long before AJ stopped vomiting and began to improve. That’s when Bombacino knew she could not only help her son, but thousands of people like him, and Real Food Blends was born. Designed for people with a feeding tube, Real Food Blends comes in four flavors and each one has just five to eight ingredients. There are no preservatives, corn syrup, dairy, soy or nuts. Not only is it made and manufactured in the US, it is covered by home health companies and insurance companies.
