Anyone been prescribed Ensure ?

Yes - OH has been guzzling it down on and off for years. The only problem was that it filled him up and he ate less food!

My husband has. He finds it very ‘thick’ if you follow me! I have tried it and it’s not too bad, but some flavours are better than others. It will build you up Annie.grin

Dietician said that three bottles a day was enough to keep DH fed.

It will definitely build you up Annie and if you have it two or three times a day you will put on some weight. Several different flavours so pick the most palatable. Good luck.🙂

My FIL had it - I think he preferred the blackcurrant one best.
