By Varda Agrawal,
I remember the day my son was born; my doctor placed this little chubby baby in my arms…Oh my little bundle of joy!
Our little angel was growing with each passing day;in weight, length and activity. All friends,colleagues and relatives who visited us to meet this little addition to our family complimented me for taking such good care of him. Yes, I did take a good care of him; like any other mother would, but actually what played the most important role in his growth spurt is breast milk. As the doctors say, breast milk is the complete diet, which provides all the nutrients needed by the baby for its growth.
As my son turned 6 months old, I started introducing him to baby food little by little. Yes, he has always been a fussy, choosy, naughty little eater; making him eat his meals has always been the biggest task of the day for me. We thought it must be because of teething discomforts and that it was just a phase that would pass. It did not!
By the time he turned 18 months, he had lost all his chubbiness; it was very disheartening for us to see our baby lose weight.People offered various ideas, but the doctor simply said that his weight was marginal and there was nothing to worry about as he was quite healthy and active.
But,the time came when he got sick quite regularly with either a cough, cold, flu or stomach ache; his health was affected because of his improper diet. His immunity and strength had reduced. By this time he was 2 years old and a very naughty toddler; we approached our pediatrician for a solution to this problem. It was suggested that we use PediaSure for kids, a scientifically designed formula with 37 Nutrients which provides complete, balanced nutrition. It contains, Prebiotics and Probiotics along with other macro and micro nutrients.
PediaSure powder helps provide nutrients known to support physical growth, immunity and the brain development of a child. It is not suitable for children who are lactose intolerant.
We bought PediaSure that is easily available in all the supermarkets, medical stores etc. For those looking for PediaSure online, it’s available via the company’s website.
Available in Flavours:-
PediaSure is available in Vanilla Delight, Premium chocolate and Kesar Badam flavours. We bought the chocolate flavour as we were quite sure our little one would prefer it.
Available Pack Sizes:-
It is available in pack sizes ranging from 1kg to 750gm, 400gm, and 200gm. They also introduced a sachet trial pack available for Rs 20 recently. We bought the 200gm pack or PediaSure powder; we wanted to give it a try, before buying a whole 1kg pack. The powder comes in jars as well as refill packs and sachets.
How to Prepare:-
PediaSure can be prepared in water or milk as per a doctor’s recommendation. If your toddler is a fussy eater and skips meals, prepare PediaSure in milk. You could also experiment with PediaSure recipes to diversify a little.
It surely tastes good, as my fussy little eater seems to love PediaSure. And so it began, #MyPediaSureJourney. Do follow the blog as I cover my #90DaysWithPediaSure journey with my son and show you how his health has progressed.
And although I was approached by Abbot to participate in their #90DaysWithPediaSure campaign, all of the information provided above, based on my experiences and views are my own.
