What does eating healthy mean?
Eating healthy means choosing food that provides all the nutrients needed by your body to function at its best. Nutrients supply energy for work and physical activities, regulate body processes and provide materials for growth and tissue repair.
What are the nutrients needed by the body?
The body needs macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, fats and water) and micronutrients (vitamins and minerals). The body also needs fibre, which gives protection against diseases (cancer, constipation and cardiovascular disease) and antioxidants that prevent cell damage caused by free radicals (cancer, cataracts and atherosclerosis).
How can you get all these nutrients?
A healthy, well-balanced diet is the key to complete nutrition. Starches and grains should be the foundation of your diet. These provide carbohydrates as well as some fibre, protein, vitamins and minerals. Vegetables and fruits are good sources of vitamins, minerals and fibre, while protein-rich foods shouldbe taken in moderate amounts. Fat and sugar provide energy but should be taken less in the diet.
What happens when you do not eat enough to meet your nutritional needs?
You may suffer from malnutrition that can be in the form of your body being under nourished, usually resulting from inadequate dietary intake. This may manifest as fatigue, dizziness, weight loss and susceptibility to infection.
How can you meet your nutritional needs if you do not have time for a healthy, well-balanced meal?
Meal supplements like Nutren offer complete nutrition in an easy and convenient way. A glass of Nutren provides all the carbohydrates, proteins and fats that you need for in a meal. Nutren Activ, Nutren Optimum and Nutren Junior contain Prebio to help improve digestive health and prevent the growth of harmful bacteria as well as provide a healthy source of fats that do not contribute to bad cholesterol in the body. Moreover, it has all the vitamins and minerals to help you feel revitalised, both mentally and physically.
What are the other benefits of a meal supplement?
It is easy to prepare. Just add it to water (milk for Nutren Activ) for a nutritionally complete, delicious drink. It does not only calm hunger pangs, but also offers complete nutrition to make you feel stronger every day.
Is taking a meal supplement equivalent to eating healthy?
Definitely. Taking a meal supplement like Nutren is the next best alternative to a complete, balanced meal for those busy days when you do not have time to eat healthy.
Nestle has a range of Nutritional supplements to meet the needs of the whole family.
 
Nutren Diabetes

Help maintain blood sugar levels throught the day
If you are living with diabetes, you know how tough it can be to stay energised – you seem to have loads of
energy one minute, and hardly any the next. If only you could smooth out the ups and downs of your
blood sugar levels.

The reason many people with diabetes may have swings in energy levels is that they have swings in their blood
sugar levels. Blood sugar provides the vital fuel or energy for your body’s cells, and its levels vary in response to the food you eat. If you have diabetes, your body is not able to use carbohydrates as efficiently as other people can. This is why your blood sugar levels tend to go up and down and, apart from affecting energy, it can also have unwanted effects on your health. That is why it is important to smooth out your blood sugar levels as much as possible.

While managing blood sugar levels can seem a bit daunting, NUTREN® Diabetes can help make it a lot easier.
NUTREN® Diabetes can be used as meal replacement, or meal supplement to help maintain healthy blood sugar levels, and help you achieve a healthy weight. Ask your dietician how you can incorporate NUTREN® Diabetes into a healthy, balanced diet. Nutren Diabetes is gluten free, lactose free and meets International Diabetic Guidelines.
