Enteral nutrition generally refers to the delivery of nutrients into the gastrointestinal tract through a feeding tube which has been placed by a health care provider. Nutritional needs can be fully met with a tube feeding formula recommended by a healthcare professional. People who cannot or will not voluntarily consume adequate oral nutrition may be candidates for a tube feeding.
Nestlé Nestle Health Science offers a variety of nutritional formulas for people who require a tube feeding to meet 100% of daily nutritional requirements. Caregivers of individuals with general tube feeding needs should consult a healthcare professional to determine which tube feeding formula may be most appropriate.
