    Tuff question. There will be similar products under a different brand name, but I was triggered by the note that this is food on a family doctor's prescription. You can have a look if you find this milk powder around, but you might need that prescription to buy it at a pharmacy.

    For those willing to help further: Look for milk powder with the following ingredients:

    PediaSure

    Some products of the Pediasure brand can be bought at a Dutch online pharmacist. Please have a look to see if this is what you mean: farmaline.nl/drogisterij/zoe...">farmaline.nl/drogisterij/zoe...

    I have checked the Dutch website of Abbott (the manufacturer) and found out how the availability works. You can order it at a pharmacist (Apotheek, in Dutch). They may need to apply for permission (but this is a matter of health insurance so it may not apply to you). Do bring your prescription(s). You can also buy it at the following addresses in the towns Utrecht, Houten, Tiel and Maastricht (but not in Amsterdam). I suggest you contact any one of them first before undertaking a journey. Easiest for you is UTRECHT, a 20 minute train ride from Amsterdam.
