Nutrition in times of illness
In adulthood, adapted nutrition can support recovery from illnesses and address malnutrition that can develop due to the disease. People who have suffered a stroke or who are fighting illnesses such as cancer can have difficulty meeting their nutritional needs through normal food alone. This means they need specific nutrition, in specialized formats. In these scenarios, medical nutrition can support better clinical outcomes and provide food and drink adjusted to the specific nutritional needs of patients.
