Why is nutrition important?
A balanced diet is important to ensure that your body has all the nutrients it needs so that it has enough energy to go about day-to-day activities, to help with recovery, and to keep the body functioning as it should. During periods of illness, you may have experienced a poor appetite, which may lead to a poor dietary intake.
This may cause some people to experience unintentional (unplanned) weight loss. During times of illness, it is important to try and maintain an adequate dietary intake to help with your recovery.
Making the most of your meals
A balanced diet that includes regular meals and snacks, containing enough energy (calories), protein, carbohydrate, fat, and vitamins and minerals, are all important for health, especially during times of illness.
You can increase your energy (calories) and protein intake by making some small simple changes to your diet.
What is Pro-Cal™?
Pro-Cal shot is an oral nutritional supplement which can be used to provide additional energy (calories) and protein at times of illness or injury, when your appetite is reduced or when you have experienced unintentional weight loss. It can be taken in small volumes throughout the day. Pro-Cal powder is a neutral tasting, powdered nutritional supplement that can be added to foods and drinks to increase their energy (calories) and protein content.
Both products are Foods for Special Medical Purposes and are for the dietary management of malnutrition. Pro-Cal shot and Pro-Cal powder are suitable from the age of 3 years old onwards.
