  • Feeding Guide

    How to adjust feeding amounts to maintain optimal weight.

    Individual requirements may vary depending on pre-existing nutritional status and medical condition. In patients where normal GI function has been compromised by anorexia, a 3-day transitional feeding strategy may be necessary: Day One: 1/3 of daily caloric intake with 2/3 water dilution. Day Two: 2/3 of daily caloric intake with 1/3 water dilution. Day Three: Entire daily caloric intake. The following daily intakes are intended as a guide and should be adjusted as needed to achieve or maintain body weight. Divide a 156g can into 3-6 equal daily feedings to minimise gastrointestinal side effects. (1 can = 150 ml).
