As a mother of a two year old who was a very poor eater and was underweight I was constantly worried about her growth and development. My doctor recommended Pediasure as a supplement. My daughter liked the taste of this easy to mix ready made cereal and there were days when she was just living on it. I have been using the product for over six months now and I feel reassured that her complete nutritional needs are being met even on days when she fusses over meals (which have also reduced considerably-her appetite is better and she is more active). Three spoons of Pediasure meet a child’s full nutritional requirements for a day. Coming in two flavours-Vanilla and Chocolate-Pediasure is a must in my opinion either as a supplement or even as a substitute meal.
