Anybody give their 3 year old pediasure? My daughter is a few weeks shy of 3 and I've been givng her Gerber Graduates Smart Sips to help with her picky eating phases she goes through. The Pediasure website says 2 years and up, but I'm just curious if anybody else gives their 3 year olds Pediasure or some other forms of nurtitions supplements with their children picky eaters or not.

I have two sons with delays. One is two, the other is four.

I give pediasures before bed only if they haven't eaten what I would consider enough throughout the day.

My oldest was a premiee, has motor delays, speech delays and behavioral issues with texture issues.

My middle has mild FAS due to his bm 'not knowing she was pregnant' all forty weeks. He is ftt still.

My ten month old is still breastfed.

My tip is feed first, pediasures and anything like it should be a last option, or else a child will just want those. They are sweet and easy.

Good luck.

I did when I was trying to ween off formula. I cut 50/50 of pediasure with milk so he did not get too much vitamins and overdose or something. then I read the nutrition on the generic store brand instant breakfast and those packets had better nutrition than the pediasure or boost! so I buy those sometimes and still use half packet at a time so my kid does not get too much iron or whatever. been doing that since he was about 14months or so. then eventually just plain milk.

I agree with you on this just careful with blueberries they stop up the system for little ones. 

Derp on me! I should be doing this too! but kiddo eats pretty well on his own and eats his solids. He does not like ice cream or really cold stuff so I would probably serve room temp smoothie lol
