Hi Mommies & Daddies,
Today I am opening my heart about PediaSure. Na! It is not a sponsored post, I mom of a 3 Years old giving you my honest review 🙂 My boy is a tall toddler (many male members in family are above 6 feet) & from the beginning he is a healthy child. So I didn’t purchased it with the objective of weight & height gain for my boy. Then what was the objective? Earlier my boy was on lactogen & I was trying him to shift to cow/buffalo milk. It took me approximately 6 months but this dude was not ready to leave it. Finally after so much research I decided to find something which can make cow milk smell & taste like lactogen milk. After so many trials & rejections, I found the solution with PediaSure in Vanilla flavour.
Price: 540 Rs
Qt: 315 gm
Direction of use:
Add 2 Scoops of PediaSure health drink powder to 150 ml of whole milk, Recommended number of servings for your kid – 2 servings per day.
For Consumption in water add 5 scoops of PediaSure health drink powder to 190 ml of water.
Packaging: The product comes in a big plastic jar, which has a flip top cap. The cap do not work properly, after few use it will stop locking properly. So it is better to use a vacuum (good quality) container. However the actual product comes in a vacuum packaging but once you open it be careful about storing it 🙂 A blue color scoop is also there. Brand can definitely improve the packaging.
My opinion about the product: The texture of this powder is exactly same like Lactogen as well as it smells same. If you are a parent (mom/dad) you will be well aware about the fragrance of each and every product (using for you baby). I mixed 2 scoop of this powder in the milk & served it to my boy. Believe me my heart stopped for a second with the thought what if he will reject it too. I mean from last six months I was going crazy to make him drink cow/buffalo milk. Then came the moment I was waiting for he accepted it with doubting me (he he). Now its almost 1 year that my boy is taking PediaSure in milk.
Now come the part of height & weight gain, to be honest I haven’t noticed any significant help. Height I will ignore (as not much worried about that) but weight is definitely I can say ‘didn’t increased much. They say it supports brain development – Linoleic Acid, Alpha Linolenic Acid, Vitamin B12, Folic Acid, Iron, Iodine, Choline and Taurine – these Neuronutrients in PediaSure helps brain development. This is the thing which you can’t estimate, I mean you won’t be able to realize that it is natural or coz of PediaSure. Brand claims that you will notice a visible result in 90 days, so I guess you can give it a try. I mean might be possible that it may work in case of your baby.
ZZM Rating: 3/5
Final verdict: As I didn’t noticed any significant result so can’t say with happy heart that you should go for it. But because of this my boy happily drinks cow milk so I am using it. Haan! If you are planning to shift your child from lactogen to cow/buffalo milk then do try my trick 😉
