You have already read how I introduced Pediasure in my younger son’s diet with the sole aim of improving his immunity. Luckily for me, he is not a fussy eater hence more often than not I am not worried that he is not eating well. As we live in Bangalore, our encounters with respiratory allergies are quite common and frequent. As soon as the monsoons descend upon us, the changing weather brings with it regular coughs and colds that just don’t seem to go away. They are especially worse for children.
Pediasure claims to boost immunity and is also a wonderful protein supplement for children. Most of us who are on a vegetarian diet often do not adequately suffice the protein needs of our growing kids. I know of friends who give their children Pediasure to supplement their nutrition from meals. It helps kids who feel tired easily and fall sick often. Since I started giving my son Pediasure in his milk, I have noticed that his energy levels do not drop even in the evenings when he cycles/jogs with us and our Labrador.
Also, he did do much better on the immunity front with his allergy incidents coming down and also becoming milder. With Pediasure and my home remedies, I managed to keep him free of sick days and no antibiotics or any strong medication for him in the entire 90 days when I tried Pediasure. Isn’t that just wonderful?
He has been growing well, and I think he is very close to his second growth spurt. I am happy with his eating habits, stamina and immunity, and as a mum that is saying a lot. I hope he can continue to thrive and stay disease resistant. We also tried the vanilla flavor of Pediasure, and it was quite enjoyable. So, I guess both the chocolate and vanilla flavours are kid friendly.
Overall, my experience with giving Pediasure to my son has been positive. Though, I have only been mixing it with milk for him as he likes to drink it as is, I think I can try some recipes of sweets too with it.
If you have a fussy child who has a poor appetite or does not seem to eat well and falls sick often, maybe you could try Pediasure and see if it helps.
It is easily available at your neighbourhood grocery or online store at PediaSure website.
