    I find comments like this interesting.  Do you give your child yogurt?  Have you ever looked at what the sugar content is?  Flavored stuff is really high and many have high fructose corn syrup.  Granola bars?  Same thing.  Cold cereal or flavored hot cereal?  Fruit Juice?

    I formula feed my youngest child, but I still find this wrong on so many levels, one thing being ONE serving of it has 19 grams of sugar.  Its like setting children up for issues with weight, obesity, and diabetes.

    When my dd was a TODDLER, I gave her Enfagrow, but it was not chocolate. They do make a regular flavor, and vanilla.  My child did not have any feeding issues, but I felt it was better for her than milk. I also gave her Gerber Graduates instead of table food.  She did not get milk or our regular meals until she was 2.  EVERYONE thought I was nuts, but my dd is 6 now and is a very healthy, happy, active child, so I must have done something right. :)

    This is a good point.

    So many are obsessing over the chocolate flavor that they aren't bothering to understand that it is not only available in chocolate.

    Just like Pediasure can be bought in vanilla, chocolate, strawberry & banana.

    As I mentioned before, my son was on "Next Step Toddler" soy formula after a year, and Pediasure after that. He will be 15 next month and is healthy, happy and wonderful!

    sounds good lol, I'm sure lots of moms give they're children nestle quick and stuff like that this is just a safer and more nutritious alternative to chocolate milk.

    It looks like a powdered form of pediasure to me which I can see children who wont drink regular milk may benefit from all the added things.

    I can't believe some people can actually start an argument over chocolate flavored formula....who cares if they have it. Don't like it, then don't give it to your kids its that simple.

    You should send a can to Jamie Oliver.  I'd pay money to watch him go off on the makers of that.

    Peace,

    I give my kids all those things and you'd better believe I scrutinize the ingredients.  Yogurt - Light and Fit has the lowest sugar and is available in 60-calorie packs.  Granola bars - I get organic cereal bars where the sugar comes from actual fruit.  Cereal is Kix, Chex, or Cheerios, not cocoa-anything or sugary crap.  Oatmeal I get the lower-sugar'ed kind and dillute it with plain.  VRUIT juice has veggies and fruit juice, and I believe no added sugar.  (It's in the organic aisle.)  My kids don't drink soda and have candy (ugh) on Halloween and Easter.

    Peace,

    Kat
