Diabetes is on the rise, and it’s getting really alarming. We already know, however, that most cases can be preventable if we embrace a healthier lifestyle. But did you know that controlling and preventing diabetes does not mean giving up sweets entirely and living a lifetime of bland healthy food?

If you have been diagnosed with diabetes and you enjoy drinking milk but a little apprehensive because of its sugar level, there is a product sent to me the other day that is said to be scientifically designed for people with diabetes, the Nutren Diabetes. This great-tasting helps manage blood sugar levels throughout the day.
Nutren Diabetes can also be part of a healthy diabetic meal plan as it meets the International Diabetic Guidelines. Do ask your doctor about it. =)
I know how difficult it is to have diabetes as the disease runs in the family. This is why, I try my very best to always serve healthy meals at home. They say that good nutrition and enough time of physical activity a day will help prevent future problems such as diabetes and obesity to kids. As a mom,I know that I need to be in the forefront to compete against unhealthy temptations that are so readily available these days such as fast food!
Another product that is also from Nestle that was sent over is the Nutren Junior.This milk is a nutritional formula for oral consumption or tube feeding designed for children above 3 years old with or at risk of malnutrition, and may be used for nutritional support before or after surgery.

Every tasty glass of ” Nutren” Junior provides Prebiotics, Probiotics (Bifldus V)DHA, Essential fatty acids Omega 3* & 6 Energy, Protein, 14 Vitamins and 12 minerals. If you think your child needs this supplement, do ask his/her pediatrician about it.
