PaediaSure Compact is a 125 ml oral nutritional supplement suitable for the dietary management of children weighing 8-30 kg with, or at risk of developing disease-related malnutrition. It has been specifically developed for children who may benefit from a smaller volume, as an alternative to ready-to-drink supplements which are 200 ml in volume. Each bottle provides 301 (2.4kcal/ml) and 8.4 g of protein. The milkshake style oral nutritional supplement is ready-to-drink and available in three flavours: banana, strawberry and vanilla. PaediaSure Compact is presented in a bottle for sipping with a peel-off seal for pouring and is best served chilled.
Monitor fluid intake to ensure adequate hydration status.
In patients receiving some medications, there may be a risk of drug-nutrient interactions (e.g. warfarin and vitamin K). Careful prescribing and monitoring practices will serve to reduce the risk (please refer to a pharmacist).
Patients should not make any additions to the feed without
consulting their pharmacist or dietitian.
Many nutritional products contain sucrose and other sugars. It is important for patients who are taking supplements as sip feeds to observe good oral hygiene. It is suggested that patients consult with their dentist for further advice.
