Tube feeding formula

Hi everyone, my daughter (quad cp) has had her g-tube surgery and we are supplementing oral feeding with tube feeds of formula. Here in the US I am using Pediasure - we are coming to the UK for family visit/holiday in about 10 days time - does Boots sell Pediasure or equivalent? I don't really want to lug 4 weeks worth of cans over in my suitcase! thanks in advance.

I know we always had to get it on prescription, but maybe you could buy it although a little costly!!

Thanks for you replies. We also get it on prescription here, but you can also buy it at Target (like Boots) - I think we will order some and bring a bag full... Thanks for the link!

A friend of mine in UK was visiting family in Italy for 6 wks last summer and the company she gets daughter's feed from arranged for 6 wks supply to be delivered to address in Italy where they would be staying. Is this something that you could perhaps arrange from US to save you lugging it all with you - we used to get Paediasure for DD delivered by a company called Abbott Nutrition so it is definitely available in this country and they do have offices in US so maybe it could be arranged!
