Boost™ Pudding was formulated by Nestle for people who have difficulty swallowing or who are unable to chew. It has become widely used during cancer chemotherapy to counter loss of appetite, to help individuals recovering from anorexia, to bolster the growth of children with a ‘failure to thrive’, and to address other weight management and nutrition issues.
Rich and creamy, this delicious treat is just like the puddings many remember fondly as a favorite after-dinner treat except that it is packed with nutritional value. A single 5 ounce can of Boost™ Pudding provides 25% of the recommended daily value of calcium in just one serving, 7 grams of high-quality protein, and a healthy dose of over 20 vitamins and minerals.
