i was told by my 4 year old's pediatrician today that she needs to start drinking this twice daily, because this apparently tastes better than pediasure. she's underweight and needs to get some meat on her bones. i have to buy the powder and mix it with whole milk, give it to her twice daily WITH meals. it sounds like this will definitely help gain weight!
does your child like this? im concerned about getting her to drink it. i hope it just tastes like chocolate milk. and im thinking of making this my breakfast (only the instant breakfast though, i certainly DONT need to gain weight) because im never hungry in the morning but i know how bad it is to skip breakfast. and i also know this is loaded with protein and carbs.
