Why High Calorie?

A high calorie diet can help stop unintentional weight loss and promote weight gain.

  1. Jam pack a ton of calories in the foods they are eating
  2. Provide delicious and appealing foods

These are delicious recipes and are high in calories. It’s a switch up from boring oral nutrition supplements. Variety, taste, and a ton of calories.
