Nutricia oral nutritional supplements Fortini and Fortini Multi Fibre are specifically designed for young children and are, therefore, the recommended sip feed for children over 1 year. Fortisip, Fortisip Compact, Fortisip Multi Fibre, Fortisip Yogurt Style, Fortijuce, Fortisip Extra, Fortimel, Fortisip Savoury Multi Fibre, Fortisip Fruit Dessert and Forticreme Complete, are not suitable for use in children under 3 years of age and are not designed for use as a sole source of nutrition in children under 6 years. However, their use in children aged 3-6 years is a clinical decision which should be made by a doctor or dietitian.
Colouring agents are not permitted in foods specifically designed for infants and young children under 3 years of age. As the Fortini range are all foods for special medical purposes specifically designed for children, we have not added colouring agents.
