COMPLEAT®

INTRODUCING REAL FOOD INTO TUBE FEEDING AND ORAL NUTRITIONAL SUPPLEMENTS

At Nestle Health Science, we strive to provide children and adults with nutritional solutions adapted to their needs and conditions.  

Meeting the nutritional needs of loved ones comes with a lot of emotions and challenges. Carers may be looking for ways to include real food ingredients into their families' tube feeding or oral diets while maintaining a sense of meaning around mealtimes and help them live a better life.  

Ensuring patients receive all needed nutrients, preserve gastrointestinal function, and improve their quality of life can be an overwhelming task for their carers. When you think about all these considerations, including real food ingredients into feeds can be demanding, time consuming and may have the additional potential risks of tube blockage or infection for patients.
