NutriniDrink is intended for oral nutritional support for children with a functional or partially functional gastrointestinal tract and who are unable or unwilling to eat sufficient quantities of conventional foods to meet their nutritional requirements. It is primarily intended as a supplement to the normal diet but can be used as a sole source of nutrition.
NutriniDrink Powder is energy dense (150kcal/100ml) to promote weight recovery. The percentage of energy from protein in NutriniDrink is 9 energy% (which equates to 3.4g/100ml) and is within that recommended by the FAO/WHO/UNU (2007) for malnourished children (>1 year) who required catch-up growth.
NutriniDrink Powder is nutritionally complete for the dietary management of undernutrition (or risk of undernutrition) in children. NutriniDrink Powder comes in neutral and vanilla flavours.

A recent study evaluated the effect of nutritional support on clinical findings in a group of 45 children with spastic quadriplegia and used NutriniDrink as part of the nutritional therapy for some of these children. Following six months of nutritional therapy the children showed significant improvements in a variety of anthropometric measurements including weight, height, midarm circumference, triceps skinfold thickness, weight for height percentiles and body mass index (BMI). Furthermore the rate of infection and rate of constipation both decreased significantly. Oral nutrition supplements (ONS) were successfully used to make up nutritional deficits in these patients for a period of six months, and although the results of the study cannot specifically be attributed to the use of ONS alone, it is clear that they play a significant role in meeting the nutritional needs of these children.
