    Sorry you arent going to get anyone there either , there are much better products for children with weight gain , and medical issues trust me , my daughter has crohns disease, at one point in her life she was on an N/G tube because she was literally starving to death because of her disease. The difference is , pediasure you can buy in a store , the other , better things require a prescription from a doctor. If you have a child with legitimate weight or feeding or medical issues , you should be asking for the prescription supplements, or liquid meals , they are much better nutritionally and have less sugar etc. All you have to do is ASK YOUR DOCTOR.

    What about children who have medical reasons for drinking this product or Pediasure....do you not agree with that either?

    Quoting CTRedSoxMom:

    And I don't agree with that either, pedisure had 23g of sugar per serving. http://pediasure.com/Products

    Quoting JADIEBUG:

    Pedisure is the same thing and people use that left and right. it is NO different than Pedisure.

    Wow...that is unvelievable.  My kids are 2 and a half and they get chocolate milk occasionally, but they know it is a treat, not a mainstay of their diet.  I cannot imagine giving an infant chocolate flavored formula.

    It is for toddlers not infants.

    And IMO there's something wrong with that too.  Kids do not need all that sugar!!!  There are other, healthier ways of putting on weight and such if that's why the parents are using those products.  If they are using them just for the flavor, there is something wrong with that.  If your kid won't drink milk, give them cheese, yogurt, etc...much healthier than this crap.

    What is the difference between this product and flavored Pedisure and Essure? NONE. Some parents give their toddlers Pedisure all the time.

    if it's ok to EBF what's wrong with this?

    Lol, I love it when people comment on something they did not look at.

    It is chocolate flavored FORMULA for toddlers

    That's why we created new Enfagrow PREMIUM Chocolate with Triple Health Guard™. With more nutrition than milk, Omega-3 DHA, prebiotics, and a great tasting chocolate flavor he'll love, you can help be sure he's getting the nutrition he still needs even after he outgrows infant formula.

    My son is on a combo of Peptamen Junior formula and Pedisure. . My son is Mic-Key button dependent. Not all his formula needs are covered with insurance. So our GI doctor worked out a plan that works best for us. His formula needs cost about $2500 a MONTH.

    Also my nephew has CF drinks Pedisure at the request of his CF specialist. So yes pedisure is sometimes the right drink for the child dependent on their needs.

    If there is a medical reason, I do not see a problem with it as long as it is prescribed. I just cant say I see a pediatrician recommending something along those lines. I know mine wouldn't.

     Peds nurse here ~ many pedi's recommend flavored pediasure for children with poor weight gain and some actually use it for tube feedings.  So I ask the OP what would your pedi prescribe for medical feedings?

    Some children need formula after 1. If they have a feeding tube, feeding issues or weight issues.

    I don't think some of you realize that kids eat what they like some kids have no interest in stuff like that. My Daughter eats cheese but there are a few things she wont touch. I'm not gonna force her to eat healthy when I already have problems getting her to eat.
