I did...and he told me to use the Pediasure for my son. So we did and it has done WONDERS for him. He looks better, he has more energy, he sleeps better....now if it would help him in school....

Quoting Mom2PunkRockers:

Sorry you arent going to get anyone there either , there are much better products for children with weight gain , and medical issues trust me , my daughter has crohns disease, at one point in her life she was on an N/G tube because she was literally starving to death because of her disease. The difference is , pediasure you can buy in a store , the other , better things require a prescription from a doctor. If you have a child with legitimate weight or feeding or medical issues , you should be asking for the prescription supplements, or liquid meals , they are much better nutritionally and have less sugar etc. All you have to do is ASK YOUR DOCTOR.

Quoting mommy_cpm:

What about children who have medical reasons for drinking this product or Pediasure....do you not agree with that either?

Quoting CTRedSoxMom:

And I don't agree with that either, pedisure had 23g of sugar per serving. http://pediasure.com/Products

Quoting JADIEBUG:

Pedisure is the same thing and people use that left and right. it is NO different than Pedisure.

I understand that issue, but why the chocolate?  I mean, sure, as an occasional treat, but not as a mainstay.

Quoting JADIEBUG:

Some children need formula after 1. If they have a feeding tube, feeding issues or weight issues.

Quoting mamaoftwins9197:

Why give them formula then? 

Quoting JADIEBUG:

It is for toddlers not infants.

Quoting mamaoftwins9197:

Wow...that is unvelievable.  My kids are 2 and a half and they get chocolate milk occasionally, but they know it is a treat, not a mainstay of their diet.  I cannot imagine giving an infant chocolate flavored formula.

Kids might not but sometimes I use it...the amount of sugar in it works good and is something different when my sugar is low. Sometimes I am just not really hungry so something like that is quite a good little snack.

Quoting mamaoftwins9197:

And IMO there's something wrong with that too.  Kids do not need all that sugar!!!  There are other, healthier ways of putting on weight and such if that's why the parents are using those products.  If they are using them just for the flavor, there is something wrong with that.  If your kid won't drink milk, give them cheese, yogurt, etc...much healthier than this crap.

Quoting JADIEBUG:

What is the difference between this product and flavored Pedisure and Essure? NONE. Some parents give their toddlers Pedisure all the time.

if it's ok to EBF what's wrong with this?

Lol, I love it when people comment on something they did not look at.

It is chocolate flavored FORMULA for toddlers

That's why we created new Enfagrow PREMIUM Chocolate with Triple Health Guardâ„¢. With more nutrition than milk, Omega-3 DHA, prebiotics, and a great tasting chocolate flavor he'll love, you can help be sure he's getting the nutrition he still needs even after he outgrows infant formula.

If you give an infant toddler formula, you have problems

Like I said, my kids get chocolate milk occasionally...and that's fine, occasionally.  I was thinking of people that are using it as a mainstay in a child's diet.  Totally unneccesary.

Frankly, I see nothing wrong with it. It's not formula, it's basically powdered Pediasure.

You never had a child with severe feeding issues, huh? If that is all you can get them to take orally...I bet you would give it.

I didn't realize it was toddler formula at first.  Since my children don't have any problems like that, I didn't realize until this thread that there was formula for toddlers.  I always thought that stopped at age 1.

Nope, I haven't, and I can't argue that point because I haven't been there.  I would like to think that there would be other options.  My kids wouldn't drink regular milk for a while once they had a taste of chocolate, but they went back to it when they realized they didn't have a choice.  I do realize that all children are different as well.  I'll just go to saying, it's not right for my kids and others can do what they please.  That's what it's all about anyway.
