Full liquid food items include items such as plain ice cream. sherbet. breakfast drinks. milk. pudding and custard. soups that are strained. and strained vegetable juices. A clear liquid diet consists of foods that are relatively transparent. The food items in options A. B. and D are clear liquids.
