Making a Conditional Fore-Blessing (Bracha Rishona)

To avoid making a blessing in vain (bracha l'vatala), you may intend a fore-blessing to cover all other foods of that category that you will eat at the same time.
Note You may make the condition:
  • Each time you eat, or
  • Once and intend it to apply to all future instances.
Note You then do NOT say new fore-blessings on these new same-category foods.
