PEDIASURE- FOR REAL PICKY EATERS

Jan 2, 2001 (Updated Jan 3, 2001)
Review by  
Rated a Very Helpful Review

Pros:Nutritious supplement for the real picky eaters.

Cons:None---------------

I can't tell you how many times I've heard mother's say "my child is a picky eater" and tell me how their child has periods when they eat very little. They say "don't worry about it, I don't give my child pediasure". However, when I see the child they're chubby. I guess I wouldn't worry too much either if my child were chubby and could afford to lose a pound or two.

My child really is a picky eater, and only weighs 32 pounds at age 3. Before pediasure, she was found to be borderline anemic and was constantly constipated. Now, she's far from borderline anemic and thanks to pediasure-fiber, constipation is no longer a problem.

I know, I know some mother's are probably saying to themselves "Why don't you just offer fresh fruit, juice, etc. for the constipation". Well, my answer to them is "What would you do when your child has not done the #2 in two days and refuses to eat plums, oatmeal, juice, etc. and your doctor only tells you there's nothing they can do except advise you to offer them fruits, oatmeal, juice etc. But when you try to offer this to your child they cry or spit it out" Would you (A) offer them pediasure with fiber, or (B) not only starve them but keep them constipated. Well, it doesn't take a degree to figure that baby out!! If you had seen her physically (before pediasure) and actually took care of her, and tried to feed her you would see why I'm so relieved that there is something like pediasure for the real picky eaters. I'm really happy to know that she is getting the nutrients that she does not get when she's picky.

I think some of the problems that people have about pediasure is that mothers will just give up on feeding their children, and substitute pediasure for a meal. I think that is an ignorant statement!! I'm glad that in this day and age that there are mothers out there who actually care that their child is not eating well, and choose to add this nutritional supplement to their diet. It may come as a surprise to some, but believe it or not there are many mothers out there who dont care!!!!!!!!!! It is true that pediasure is expensive, but I would rather go without a few luxuries than have my child go without nutrition. Now, for the people who are below the middle class level WIC now funds pediasure. So, there really is no reason to gripe about the expenses of pediasure. Pediasure is only $10 a 6 pack (unless you go to a convenience store where they raise the prices to everything). So, to the mother's out there with real picky eaters congratulations I think you have made a wonderful choice for you and your child.
