If a client is experiencing rapid weight loss, malnutrition or has problems with nutrition absorption, A Loving Spoonful will provide Ensure or Ensure Plus meal replacement drinks, as an additional dietary supplement.
This is ALWAYS in conjunction with either the Daily Meals Program or Family Pantry Program, and is a temporary measure.
The Ensure Program offers a short-term provision of Ensure or Ensure Plus meal replacement drinks for individuals who are on ANY program and have immediate need for weight gain or who are nutritionally compromised due to a current medical condition (dental surgery, oral thrush etc,).
The program is closely monitored by our Registered Dietitian to ensure short-term provision only.
This vital service is made possible by Abbott Laboratories, a broad-based health-care company devoted to discovering new medicines, new technologies and new ways to manage health.
By graciously donating ALL the Ensure and Ensure Plus product distributed by A Loving Spoonful, Abbott are helping us to provide essential nutrition support to some of Vancouver’s most in-need individuals.
