MILK POWDER FOR ELDERLY TOO COSTLY, GVT SHOULD LOOK INTO THIS TOO

With regard to the prices of infant milk powder, I hope the Government can also look into reducing the prices of nutritional drinks for the elderly.

Many of the elderly may have difficulty eating nutritionally-sufficient meals because their swallowing muscles have weakened. Hence they need nutritional milk, such as from the Ensure brand, to get sufficient nutrition as part of their diet.

The cost per tin, however, can be high – around S$40 and above – so it would be appreciated if the appropriate body could look into this.
