Pediasure is for sick individuals. Those who have difficulty in taking or digesting normal food. It is not for “picky” eaters.

Many parents and professional colleagues have a certain target weight for the child, in mind.

So Pediasure is given with the belief that the child will take it and then eat a normal meal as well. Unfortunately that is not true.

A human body can only take a certain number of calories. If it is supplied as Pediasure then the normal diet won’t be eaten.

So the choice is yours. Either home cooked food or Pediasure.


  1. This is very informative. I would like to know if kids who are given pediasure during their earlier days, continue to be like that - no interest in eating food and highly fussy?

  2. Thanks for this eye opener doc.. We were one of those parents who thought pediasure was another health drink..

  3. Wonderful information. If a child is prone to any specific infection often, say, stomach upsets/ infections, is there any food/ medicine (allopathic or ayurvedic) that would help enhance stomach immunity??
