Your Questions About Nutritional Supplements For Kids with Chron’s Disease

Posted Apr 04 2011 2:06pm

Chris asks…

I need to know about nutritional drinks for kids with Crohn’s . I have a friend with an 11 year old son who has Crohn’s. I have a lot of nutritional shakes and drinks here and I wanted to send them to her.

One of the shakes I have is Carnation Instant Breakfast Very High Calorie. It is in a can and is very high in fat. I also have Breeze,Enlive and Ensure Plus. I purchased them for my mother but she passed away in March and I want to give the drinks to someone who can use them. I know that the child can drink regular Ensure.

My question is for Crohn’s sufferers. Can you eat foods that are high in fat? What nutritional drinks do you use? Are there any foods or supplements that help with the symptoms?

I am going to ask the child’s mother,but he is in the hospital right now and I don’t want to bother her.
These drinks are lactose-free.

Here is a Blog for Crohns sufferers… it will give you a good range of advice on what foods they should and shouldn’t eat (not that everyone will have the exact same patterns or problems).  Milk is a problem for many. It doesn’t look like this has been updated for a while, which doesn’t mean the information isn’t useful. If somebody has a better resource, let us know via a comment on this post.
