We need energy to carry out our daily activities and to maintain our body weight. Protein is required for muscle growth and tissue repair for better immunity, stronger muscles and faster wound healing.

A high energy, high protein diet is helpful to meet your nutritional needs when you have:

  1. Loss of appetite/poor oral intake/early satiety (feeling full quickly after eating)
  2. Unintentional weight loss
  3. Increased nutritional requirements (e.g. prolonged infections, multiple wounds, cancer)

Find out about more sources of energy and protein, as well as how you can increase your energy and protein intake.
