Medical nutrition

We support patients of all ages who have been prescribed medical nutrition: some for a short period, others for their whole lives.

We look at the world through the eyes of our patients and their families, so we can provide the best possible care day to day, and in difficult or challenging times.

Making life better with specialised nutrition

At Nutricia, we’re proud of our role in pioneering nutritional solutions that help millions of people across the world. We focus our skills and research on products tailor-made for specific conditions. Our ongoing mission is to make nutrition an integral part of healthcare.

We develop medical nutrition to make a positive, proven difference to people with health issues, whether big or small.

Nutricia products are foods for special medical purposes and should only be used under medical supervision.
