  • Why do you have ensure at your house? Is someone sick?
    It shouldn't hurt him but, you didn't say why he did give it to him. Is your son sick? Won't eat?

  • No. lol we bought the ensure because it was on sale and my friend said that they taste long milkshakes. Ya right they are nasty i had a sip gross! I just wasnt sure if it was okay because its ensure and for adults. I should never bought them! Never listen to a friend who drinks those because she has no real teeth!
