Swallowing difficulties can make eating a snack or a meal difficult, time consuming and stressful. We have therefore created Slõ Milkshakes+ – a thickened drink that’s high in protein, calories and contains a mix of essential vitamins and minerals. Clinicians call it a thickened oral nutritional supplement.
They have been created to supplement a diet – not replace it – because we encourage a food first approach. However, we know that eating enough can be difficult for people with swallowing difficulties making it difficult to consume all the essential ingredients a health body needs – especially protein.
Vitamins and minerals are also essential for a healthy body, but difficult to maintain with dysphagia. Consequently, we have created liquid vitamins drops to help. Easily absorbed on the tongue, they supplement essential nutrient intake in a small, concentrated amount.
