In brief: Both are good

Both ensure and boost have about the same number of calories (250) as well as more in the plus varieties.
Both suppy good amounts of protein, and can be used if you are lactose intolerant or need a gluten free diet. Cost and taste could be a factor, and are both better if chilled. My patients seem to like them both about the same. Consider carnation instant breakfast if money/taste is a concern.
