Calories at your Convenience

The good news is that Duocal allows your child to enjoy the natural goodness of their
favorite, regular foods and increase their calorie intake. There is no need for your child to fill up on liquid nutritional supplements - you can just add Duocal into their normal diet.

Simply add Duocal to foods and beverages at meal or snack time without changing the
taste, texture or amount of food.  This is great if your child is struggling with food intake.
Extra calories can be added to small amounts of food to ensure your child receives
essential calories for catch-up growth without the struggle of increasing the amount of food
they need to eat. Duocal is the best thing your child will never taste!
