Modulen drinks

Hi
My son (13) was diagnosed with crohns 5 weeks ago and has been on modulen drinks for the last 4 weeks. The results have been great, weight gain, no pain, 1-2 toilet visits a day. Whilst not back to full health he is a different boy to a month ago. In 2 weeks we are allowed to start food again, I wondered if anyone had any advice or tips?
Many thanks

It's great to hear that Modulen has been working so well for your son! If you read through the link below, you'll find some suggestions for ways to reintroduce food after EEN:

Has your son started on any long-term maintanence meds? Hope that he continues to feel better.
