I never thought I’d ever have to supplement my toddler’s meals with formula… until the night that she pooped in my bed and the smell woke my 2 month old baby up. Yes, that’s my opening line and I’m sticking with it. It was a messy affair – one that I’m sure many moms have had to endure atleast once in their lives. But it’s even more terrible when your usually energetic child is suddenly weak and unable to eat or hold anything in. In a fortunate turn of events, Pediasure Complete had just sent me a gift that contained a tin of their nutrient-rich, lactose free powder. The supplement provides balanced nutrition for kids aged three to ten, who are experiencing growth challenges or who are not getting a balanced diet in.
Anyways, once we had Curly on the right meds I could work on getting her to eat something to sustain her energy. Well, she obviously wanted nothing. Nothing except the Pediasure, that is. According to Hubstopher, the powder (mixed with nothing but water) tastes just like milkshake (trust him to taste it). I was just relieved that my curly girly was getting something in and that it contains 16 vitamins and minerals, essential Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, irons and proteins.
The cool thing about Pediasure is that it’s a great way to supplement a meal if your kid is a fussy eater. I mean, kids naturally have high energy requirements to support their growth and development. If children don’t get enough energy from food, they get tired, irritable and have poor concentration. The supplement has been given the green light by both parents and health care workers, who recommend it for children who are experiencing growth challenges.
Anyways, my curly girl is doing much better now!
