Hello everone, I need some advice on a nutritional supplement. Hope someone here can help. Here is my situation:
My 11 year old daughter and I were in a car accident and she has a broken jaw which will be wired shut for the next 4 weeks. She is VERY skinny and can not afford to lose ANY weight at all. (No eating disorder, I was always the same way, super high metabolic rate). We have been told by the doctor that everything that goes into her mouth must be high in calories. I am also concerned about nutrition. I want to make sure that everything she eats has lots of vitamins and nutrients in it too. Especially calcium (she doesn't like milk).
I know pediasure is an option and we'll probably get some of that. Is there another supplement available at health food or nutrition stores that will fill the bill for calories and nutrition? Maybe a powder that I can add to smoothies and milkshakes?
Thanks for the help!!
