I am very proud of my mum today. She struggles to eat sometimes, she has a very sensitive stomach and I know she can’t really be bothered with cooking just for herself quite often since my dad died (was a while ago but still).
Anyway, I gave her a taste of my huel drink a few weeks ago and she really liked it so I dropped a pack of BE chocolate, some of the bars for her to try and a few flavour boosters for her the other day.
She really hasn’t felt like eating anything since yesterday but she managed a huel for lunch today and just messaged me to ask for more salted caramel bars!
So that’s 600 really nicely balanced calories that she had whereas without the huel there wouldn’t be anything much more than maybe a bit of toast and a cup a soup.
Very happy that she’s giving it a go, huel should consider pushing adverts in some relevant publications for older people because so many can’t be bothered to cook if they are alone and malnutrition amongst the elderly is such a problem, especially in the current climate.
Just a thought.
