  • It helps with the immune system, and usually people use as a transition point, I dont use it, but I see why some do!

  • It may have added nutrients and calories some underwight children may need. I really don't see any point in using it unless your child has a health condition and it would be needed. My son is on a formula for ages 1-10 but that is because he needed the added calories and is allergic to foods and needed the nutrients in it. But it's a prescription only formula, not one you buy off the shelves.
