I developed Jan-Stix for my mother, Janice Marshall. After her stroke Jan had difficulty using a fork, and was restricted to a “finger food” diet.Jan-Stix allow Jan to enjoy many of her favorite foods, such as stews, salads, pasta, vegetables, rice, sliced fruit and berries.Jan was able to once again dine with dignity.The last time I made something for my mother it ended up on the refrigerator door--now it can help her eat what’s inside!
