It could be for a variety fo reasons. Some people may not be able to eat regular food (for a host of reasons, such as surgery, injury, trauma to the face / throat / stomach / esophagus, coma, ect.) or do not want to eat food (as in the case of an eating disorder) and so the food must then be "force fed" essentially, though an IV or a feeding tube.
