Are you aware of the Nutritional Supplements Finnegan Medical Supply carries?

Many Americans, be they children, adults, or elderly, could use a nutritional supplement instead of or in addition to regular meals.  With so many Americans on the run, a supplement shake is an easy way to get the vitamins, minerals, and protein that our diets are often lacking.

Children who are picky eaters, whether because of a medical diagnosis like autism or just because they are a typical toddler, may especially benefit from nutritional supplements for multiple reasons.  As the mother of a toddler, I can rarely get him to eat anything because my child does not stop moving!  A shake like Pediasure with Fiber or a pudding cup like Boost Pudding would taste like a treat but be full of nutrients to keep my active kid from crashing.

Older people benefit from nutritional supplements because they are easier to eat and swallow than most foods and are nutritionally dense enough that even if your aging parent or grandparent won’t eat that often, they can still get the calories that they need.  They are also easy and convenient.  Just keep a case of something like Ensure Plus in their refrigerator or cupboard and you won’t have to worry if your loved one is eating. There are even nutritional drinks for people with special diabetic needs, like Glucerna Shakes.

If you are concerned about the nutritional intake or eating habits of a loved one, be sure and speak to a medical professional about the steps you need to take.  Stress, change, and living life can all affect our appetites.  It’s always a good idea to have food on hand that is nutritionally sound as well as convenient.
