Nutrition Information: Vivonex Pediatric formula is a nitrogen containing elemental (100% free amino acids) diet designed for children 1-10 years of age for enteral nutrition. The Vivonex Pediatric elemental diet is an effective alternative for total parenteral nutrition (TPN), except in patients where enteral feeding may be contraindicated. Its high-essential to nonessential amino acid ratio with enhanced glutamine content and optimal quantity of protein-sparing carbohydrate, make it especially useful in stressed, catabolic children. The Vivonex Pediatric diet may further benefit that permits maximal absorption with minimal digestion.
