It has already been a month of using PediaSure nutrition. I hopped onto this journey of PediaSure for kids because we were having recurring mealtime battles with our toddler. PediaSure also came to the rescue because my son was losing weight and falling sick quite frequently. So, after a month’s usage, I can see a slight increase in my toddler’s weight and immunity. In my opinion, winter was the best time to try this product because my son’s immunity levels are at an all-time low during this period. He would often catch a cold, cough and get the flu during the colder months. But lately, I have seen an increased resistance to cold. The changes aren’t drastic, of course; I believe it will still take some time for the actual results to show.The initial results are, however, very good and I am optimistic about the future as well with PediaSure usage.

My Pediasure Usage

I gave my child PediaSure powder with milk (it can also be mixed with water). I personally believe milk is a better option, because with milk, I am also adding a little calcium to my son’s diet along with the nutritional content of PediaSure. Just remember one thing, that the milk shouldn’t be extremely hot, precisely speaking, no more than 35 degrees Celsius. This is because any temperatures higher than this can kill the probiotic contents in PediaSure.

Pediasure recipes

My little one is very fond of Suji halwa. I generally prepare it as a power breakfast because it provides the desired nutrition from wheat and is also pleasing to his taste buds. It also keeps my son full for at least 2 hours. As part of my PediaSure Journey, I decided to introduce PediaSure powder into my recipe for Suji halwa. My son savoured the halwa with absolute delight and I heaved a sigh of relief. At last, I can relax knowing he is getting the desired nutrients necessary for growth and brain development. You can also try other PediaSure recipes from the PediaSure site as well.

Observations

As i mentioned before, I have observed a slight increase in my son’s weight over the past one month.I will continue my PediaSure journey as I am quite upbeat about this and I see good results with PediaSure already. I can also see a developed resistance in my son’s immunity to cold and viral infections. Earlier, with the onset of winter, he would fall ill, butthis winter, things have changed; my son doesn’t havea runny nose anymore! This was a frequent occurrence before the introduction of PediaSure into his diet.

 

Experiment with Other Flavours

I am continuing the Premium Chocolate flavour. Frankly speaking, my son loves it and because PediaSure has already started showing results, I don’t believe I’ll be changing flavours, at least for the time being. But I’m sure I’ll give the other flavours – Kesar Badam and Vanilla – a try a little later on just to add variety to his oral nutrition.

Picky Eater Issues

Because mealtimes were always a struggle between me and my son, I used to worry about his potentially falling nutrition intake. Now, I can be assured that he is getting the desired 37 nutrients that PediaSure powder comes loaded with. PediaSure for kids has solved the mealtime squabbles with my son.

PediaSure powder can be purchased from your local chemist or from http://pediasure.in/.

 

Disclaimer: I should mention that although PediaSure approached me to review their product as part of their #90DaysWithPediaSure campaign, all views and opinions expressed in my writing are my own. So follow me on #MyPediaSureJourney as I show you just how the supplement has worked out for my child over the next few weeks.
