We all know that a healthy, balanced diet is vital for staying healthy. As we get older, we may not be able to meet our daily nutritional requirements with our usual diet.

This is when adding Ensure into meals can be of great value.

Ensure is scientifically formulated for people needing a nutritional boost to their normal diet, which may be inadequate for their body’s needs due to age, illness or a chronic condition. Ensure provides energy, protein and a wide range of minerals and vitamins essential for health.

Below we’ve put together a range of great tasting recipes which will assist you in preparing nourishing soups, meals, snacks and desserts with the added benefits of Ensure to help increase your nutritional intake.You can indulge in some of the foods you love and know you are getting the vitamins and minerals you need every day.
