Convalescent food

What mix do you feed your rats when they are sick/losing weight/refusing food?

One of my girls is on Chloramphenicol orally twice a day, and has gone off her food.  Our standard mix of high energy food has failed to tempt her, she even ignored Nutrigel after two mouthfuls!

Our standard mix is prepared by my girl, and is a combination of budgie crumbles, baby custard, crushed biscuits and other goodies, mixed with fresh cream and nuked before serving by finger.
