Full-liquid diet-rationale: a full-liquid diet consists of fluids and foods that are liquid at room temperature. some examples are milk, custard, ice cream, puddings, vegetable and fruit juices, refined or strained cereals, and egg substitutes. although milk, custard, and vanilla ice cream may be included in a dietetic exchange diet, they dont necessarily indicate that the client is following a dietetic exchange diet. a clear-liquid diet includes transparent liquids, such as apple juice, ginger ale, and chicken broth. the brat diet is commonly used to combat diarrhea and limits intake to bananas, rice, applesauce, toast, and dairy products.client needs category: physiological integrityclient needs subcategory: basic care and comfortcognitive level: comprehensionreference: craven, r.f., and hirnle, c.j. fundamentals of nursing: human health and function, 5th ed. philadelphia: lippincott williams & wilkins, 2007, p. 989.
