Our almost 3 year old has been on enfamil premium formula (fed through her G-tube) since she has been nine months old. As of late her GI doctor has told us to switch her to Neocate Junior. We have very slowly been transferring her to Neocate. As this transfer has been taking place, we have noticed how hyperactive she has become. By the end of the day she doesn't know which way to run. I looked at the ingredients on the label yesterday of the Neocate and the very first thing listed is corn syrup solids (53%). So much sugar!! He wanted to put her on a more age appropriate formula.
We have to get her off of this formula but don't know which way to turn. I know they load the formula up with sugar so the kids will eat it but Sadie doesn't even taste it so that isn't an issue for us. Do any of you know of any nutritional formulas, low in sugar that can be used in the tube? Or have any of you made any yourself? Mary
