Worrying if your child is eating right is the single largest bit of stress that all parents go through, followed by dealing with increased sickness especially cold and cough. I remember when my sons were toddlers, they were very fussy eaters. And one problem I had was that they would not eat dinner. They would eat some junk food for an evening snack and feel so full that they couldn’t eat any more or they would just go to bed early and skip dinner. It used to make me feel quite terrible.
Luckily they outgrew that phase and started eating heartily at all meals. But of late, I’ve noticed that when it comes to having milk in the evenings, my 10-year-old son, who used to accompany it with a fruit and bread toast, is not so keen on that anymore. I put a supplement in the milk which my son has got bored of. He asks me to use coffee, which I allow, at times, but don’t want it to become a regular habit.
It has been scientifically proven that nutritional supplements up the protein and carbohydrate content of milk which is perfect when their energy levels dip in the evening and before they go out to play. Then another mother recommended PediaSure for kids to me. It is a nutrition supplement that has complete, balanced nutrition and is recommended to help bridge the nutrient gaps in your child’s daily nutritional requirement. Also, what caught my attention was that PediaSure helps support immunity.
I have noticed that my younger son has been suffering niggling colds and allergies a bit too often these days. I sincerely hope that PediaSure nutrition will help him with building stronger immunity, especially as winter is setting in.
Unboxing the Product
So, I went ahead and ordered PediaSure powder in its chocolate flavour, which is my son’s favourite. This 1 Kg pack contains two pouches of 500g each. It is available at an MRP of about Rs. 1000 for 1kg.
It is simple to prepare; just add 5 scoops of PediaSure powder to pre-boiled water that is settled at room temperature (less than 35 degrees) and consume immediately. It can also be added to milk.
PediaSure is made of milk protein and is formulated with 37 nutrients for balanced nutrition that helps support a child’s healthy growth (increase in height and weight) and improve immunity and brain development for fussy eaters.
I gave the drink to my son who loved its chocolaty taste.
I will be tracking his immunity and sick days over the next 2 months so watch this space to know how that goes.
Although PediaSure approached me to review their product as part of their #90DaysWithPediaSure campaign, all views and opinions expressed in my writing are my own. So follow me on #MyPediaSureJourney as I show you just how the supplement has worked out for my child over the next few weeks.
