Getting daily nutrition

by Anna

Our son has cerebral palsy and can't swallow hard things - so we were stuck on how to make sure he is getting his daily nutrients once he stopped drinking Pediasure.


The answer came from his nutritionist - give him a 'complete' multi-vitamin, preferably designed for kids.

The trick though is to use a pill crusher, which converts the hard pill into a fine powder. Then we take the powder and sprinkle it over his meal, or add it to ice cream.

Pros and cons of using a pill crusher for daily nutrition needs
by: Anonymous

Pros:
It's extremely easy to use, and the resulting powder is very versatile.

Cons:
It was hard to find a pill crusher to begin with. We had never heard of it, so didn't know what to look for. Then we had to ask 4 pharmacists before we found a store that had it in stock.

But... once we had it, it really saved the day for us.
