Gentle desserts are perhaps the easiest thing to eat on a bland diet, and the easiest to put together. Food lists recommend canned fruit, but less sugary homemade compotes are not only easy to make, they are a lot more delicious. Same thing goes for puddings and cakes. They can be nutritious as well as treats, which can’t always be said for overly sweetened store-bought. And it’s always better to know what you’re eating anyway.
