Who are nutritional drinks for?
Nutritional drinks are ideal for those who struggle to get the nutrients they need to stay healthy from diet alone.
This can include people who struggle to swallow or chew or have lost their appetite, which can happen due to illness or dental work.
They can also be used by people who have recently had an operation or struggle to gain or maintain their weight.
Are nutritional drinks suitable for children?
Nutritional drinks are not suitable for children under the age of 1 unless it’s been advised by your doctor.
Children older than 1 are usually fine to take them, but with caution - always speak to a doctor or pharmacist first if you’re worried that your child isn’t gaining weight or getting all of the nutrients they need, as they might be able to suggest a more suitable option.
Can nutritional drinks replace meals?
Yes, but they should not be relied on to do so.
If you’re struggling to eat due to illness or dental work, consuming a nutritional drink is fine for the short term so your body can stay healthy and work as it should.
If you’re looking to gain weight, these should be encouraged in addition to the food you eat.
