What are 'additional nutrients'?
This refers to the nutritional formula we use to supplement regular meals when the nutritional value of the food doesn’t meet the daily requirements, thereby promoting good health.
What is Blenuten?
Blenuten is a food supplement with high nutritional value that is also gluten free and low in lactose. Blenuten helps children between 1 and 10 years old meet their required daily energy and nutritional requirements when their daily dietary intake is insufficient.
When is the use of Blenuten recommended?
Blenuten can be used as an addition to regular meals or as a complement when the daily required nutrient intake is insufficient:
- Children with growth problems.
- Children who have difficulty eating, who have little appetite, or are suffering from malnutrition.
- Children who do a lot of physical exercise.
- Children who have lactose intolerance and/or are allergic to various foods.
- Children with acute or chronic illness who have digestive problems, or who are undergoing postoperative recovery or oncology care.
How to prepare Blenuten?
To prepare a 200 ml serving, add 4 tablespoons of Blenuten to a glass of warm water (160 ml) and stir until it is completely dissolved.
Can I mix Blenuten with liquids other than water? And with which kinds of food?
Blenuten has a great vanilla flavour and dissolves easily in water or food. This means that Blenuten can be dissolved in water with a shaker e.g. to give it a delicious vanilla flavour, as well as in other types of liquids, such as juice or soup.
Blenuten can also be used to enrich vegetable purees, creams, desserts, e.g. to increase the calorific value without increasing the volume.
How many servings of Blenuten should children consume per day?
The recommended amount of Blenuten depends on whether it is used as a supplement or to complete the daily required nutritional intake of the child, as well as on her age. Consult your paediatrician to ask the appropriate amount for your child’s age, weight, etc.
Remember that nutritional supplements should not be used as a replacement for a balanced and varied diet.
In what kind of packaging is Blenuten available?
Blenuten is available in powder form both in 400 g and 800 g tins.
One 400 g Blenuten tin contains about 7 servings (when dissolved).
