Good life with Nutren Junior and Nutren for Diabetes ♥

It can be hard to make sure kids eat a well-balanced diet. I often worry that my kids may not be getting the nutrients they need and that they are having too much junk food, well I cannot blame them because I, myself is fond of eating junk foods, processed and fast foods. 

I find it challenging to encourage kids to eat healthier food. Kids who are suffering from malnutrition are more likely to get sick and my kids seem like they are always sick and that I get so frustrated. 

I am so grateful that I was sent a sample from Nestlé Health Science that can be used for meal replacement or a supplement to help my kids get the complete nutrition they need . 

Nutren JUNIOR- is a nutrionally complete formula in powder for children above 3 years, with dual use as an oral nutritional supplement drink and an enteral tube feeding. It is suitable for children with malnutrition (primary or secondary disease)

It's lactose, gluten free and low residue.

It has added Probiotics which are microorganisms that has health benefit when taken in adequate amounts including enhanced immune function and improved gut health and Prebiotics which are dietary fibres that also assist in keeping tummies healthy and act as a food for growth of good bacteria. It also has added Docosahexanoic (DHA) is needed for normal brain and visual development and an essential fatty acid that cannot be produced by the body itself and has to be taken in via food.

It comes with a scoop and easy to use and store. 
It has a pleasant-tasting vanilla flavor. The taste they like, the nutrition they need to grow strong and healthy.  

Nutren Junior is best recommended to kids aged above 3 years old who are with 
  • Below average weight and height
  • Poor appetite
  • Recovering from illness 
  • Before or after surgery
  • Swallowing difficulties or painful oral conditions. 

These days, it's hard to ignore the news of exploding increases in type 2 diabetes. What's really scary is that diabetes doesn't just affect you in the short term. It is a leading cause of morbidity and mortality, which triggers the onset of heart disease, stroke, kidney and nerve problems. These are very real consequences that can happen to anyone who isn't taking steps to keep their diabetes under control. 

My father-in-law was one of those people. When we went back from the Philippines from the States back in year 2009 he was already been in and out of the hospital because of his diabetes and had complications. Diabetes had taken so much from him and because of the complications, that was the sad reason he died just months after we went back to the Philippines. 

We still miss him every day.

What is Diabetes?

Diabetes mellitus or simply diabetes is a metabolic disease characterized by elevation of blood sugar, either because the pancreas does not produce enough insulin, or because cells do not respond to the insulin that is produced. This high blood sugar produces the classical symptoms of polyuria (frequent urination), polydipsia (increased thirst) and polyphagia (increased hunger).

People living with diabetes need a supplement and especially if you are very busy and need an instant, nutritious meal while away from home, you do not cook or no time to cook, have digestive problems, have decreased appetite or tend to ignore mealtimes and have difficulty to make meals for themselves or follow a balanced meal plan.  

Nutren Diabetes is a vanilla flavoured nutritionally-balanced drink especially designed to help people with diabetes manage their blood sugar levels. 

Nutren Diabetes can be used a meal replacement or a meal supplement to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels. It is easy to prepare and can also supplement or replace breakfast or be used as a snack between meals instead of less healthy alternatives. 

Nutren Diabetes can be used for Type 1 or Type 2 diabetics as well as in gestational (pregnancy) diabetics. Some of its characteristics are: 
  • Low glycemic index (Gl)
  • Soluble and insoluble fibers to help improve blood glucose control
  • Enriched with 30 vitamins and minerals
  • Lactose-free and gluten-free
  • No added sugar; complex carbohydrates
  • Monounsaturated fatty acids; low cholesterol

It is good to know that there is a supplement like Nutren Diabetes to help maintain blood sugar levels throughout the day.

Nestle has a range of Nutritional supplements to meet the needs of the whole family.

Use under Medical Supervision. Consult your doctor as always before taking any supplements.

  1. Nowadays kase, super kulang na sa nutrition ang mga kids because they are more focus on eating sweets and junk foods. My sissy always eats chocolates and candy, pinagbabawalan nga sya ng mom ko but I cannot blame her because I eat those foods too. :D So for a sure well balanced diet, we need something talaga na makakapagprovide nun. Good thing I know about this product because of you. :)
    This is a very good milk, hindi lang pambata, but also for adults.Nestle always provide a very good product range for the family. Good thing, pede na yung milk na nutren jr for my sissy, and I will also recommend the other milk for my lolo because he has diabetes..
    Thank you Ms. Rochelle for sharing this healthy milk to us. :)

    1. yes ako din mahilig sa sweets and junk foods and I am not a very rice person. Pero I am trying my best to give my kids healthy foods and Nutren is a good healthy choice also because they have history of diabetes.

  2. Hi there! I'm at work browsing your blog from my new iphone 3gs!
    Just wanted to say I love reading your blog and look
    forward to all your posts! Keep up the superb work!

  3. Yes i certainly agree with you Ms.Rochelle. As a mom, I am also very particular with the health of the family, especially the kids. I am scared of the risk for having diabetes because going back two generation, our family have history of diabetes. They say that the closer the family remember, the higher the risk. My dad died of complications for diabetes like his mom. However, We have learned that basic lifestyle changes can delay the development of diabetes. Exercise and eat healthy are my bullets. It is actually my first time to encounter this Nutren, Its great that they have a lot of health benefits that you cannot find in other formula for kids. I can alternate this with their current milk supplement to make sure they receive enough nutrients they need. Thanks a lot for sharing this Ms.Rochelle

    1. Yes me too I am very much particular with the health of the family. Nowadays we need to be very extra careful and take care of them more. :-)

  4. Diabetes Mellitus is one of the most common disease now. Mahilig kasi tayo sa sweets especially mga kids. Good to know that Nestle have a supplement to maintain sugar levels..and mukhang masarap pa oh, vanilla flavored. hehe :) Thank you to Nestle for these kind of products they have produced. And thank you for sharing about this Ms. Rochelle <3 I can recommend this to my future patients and also to my families and friends ♥

    1. Yes masarap siya! I would definitely give them tips about it.

  5. Woah ! Naguguluhan na ko haha. Nung nakaraan Nido and now this Nutren Junior and Nutren for Diabetes. It was my first time to read about this product and ngayon ko lang talaga siya nakilala. NapaWOW ako kasi ngayon lang po ako nakabasa ng ganitong info's about milk. As in ? It helps maintain blood sugar level throughout the day ? Surely maraming bibili nito lalo na yung mga Moms na super alaga sa kids nila. Napakamahilig pa naman ng mga chikitings sa sweets and nowadays talaga andami ng naeengaged sa ganitong disease. Pwede rin kaya ang ganito sa adults or may adults version po kaya ng milk na ito kasi yung Papa ko may diabetes and gusto ko sanang makatulong yung ganitong products sa kaniya. Nakakainis lang kasi may ganito kaming disease sa family :(
    Sana po ay meron :)
    I'll tell my family about this and my auntie's for their children
    Thanks for this awesome blog :) ♥

    1. My son needs it the most now kase medyo talaga mahirap sila pakainin pero they use both milk now. As a mom I always keep researching about more good nutrition tips for my kids lalo na they always get sick and gusto ko kase maging healthy talaga sila.

  6. Thanks for sharing us about this product. I don't know if I already seen it at the grocery stores but I think its nice to know there's such a product. Prebiotics is really good for our stomach, I just wonder if they also have milk from expecting moms? I would really want to try their brand. I think its really good to invest when it comes to our health. Hindi nakakapanghiyang ang pera basta maganda ang product and good for the health. I indeed agree, mahirap talaga magkasakit ~ especially if its diabetes. Sa pagkakaalam ko, when you have diabetes you need to have a good diet especially for it. Parang ang hirap since I love sweets :) A healthy lifestyle is a must, so we can live longer :) I hope to try Nutren Junior when my coming angel is a grown up :D hehe

    1. I am really super happy for you that you are now expecting. Yes even as expectant moms u need to watch what you eat. Eat more healthy foods as you are also eating for two. When you are pregnant u can also likely to develop diabetes mellitus. Pregnancy causes the blood sugar to go up so it is also advisable just in case to take some treatments to have a healthy baby.

  7. Wow, thanks for the info Ms Chelle. Yes I read a lot to know more about my pregnancy. I am hoping for a healthy baby :) khit hindi na babae as long as healthy sya ( i want a baby girl hehe). I am also taking care of my skin at same time, anyway having stretch mark is just a proof of being a wonderful mom :)
