  • I don't think a toddler should be drinking pediasure unless recommended by their dr. Feed them nutritious food, when they get hungry they will eat. If they are filling up on an artificial sugary drink, of course they aren't going to want real food.

  • solids first, then pediasure (if at all). theres a reason its called a supplement, not a food replacement. you cater to picky eaters they will turn into picky adults (unless theres a reason for the pickiness beyond "its gross").

  • unless there is a medical reason pedia sure should be a last resort. Healthy food should always be first!

  • Pediasure is not a substitute for good nutrition found in real food.

  • If your sister in law is only feeding a toddler pediasure, you should call CPS, not ask strangers.
