I knew something was wrong. My motherly instincts were telling me that the diet I was offering to my child was not enough. Even though my child said that she was full, I knew that her body needed much more than only homemade food cooked by me. Was there a need to address this selective eating disorder treatment? I understood that at her age, her energy levels were high and so her energy requirements would also be high.
I tried to incorporate every possible healthy food option for her meals. I put veggies in her khichdi; I used pure ghee to make her food. I opted for full fat cow’s milk. I offered her milk by-products and focussed a lot on her growth by offering her healthy food for picky eaters. You would call me “mad” if I told you that I used to tell strangers that my daughter hasn’t eaten anything in days. That’s how frustrated I became.
At her second year’s pediatric appointment, the doctor checked her height-weight growth chart and asked me if she is a picky eater. To which I nodded. Her weight increase in one whole year was just 1 kg and her height was on track. She seemed comparatively thinner than other kids of the same age. This was enough to give me sleepless nights. She was falling behind on her growth milestones. Was this a selective eating disorder?
The doctor suggested giving only home cooked meals full of nutrients but also suggested PediaSure, to be given twice daily, either mixed with water or milk.
She generally refused milk most of the time after a sip or two but as I added a spoonful of PediaSure, she loved it. I kept her food intake as it is just added PediaSure to her dietary routine. Within a few months, I could see she was gaining some weight as well as height.
I know sometimes, as mothers we blame ourselves for our kids’ picky eating habits., but that is all part of childhood. We must ensure that if there is any trusted supplement available in the market, we must utilize it at the right time. Being ignorant will only cost us good health. So, adding these micro and macronutrients through PediaSure is a great way to ensure the child’s added nutrient intake is right on track.
And if this wasn’t enough, I was in for a surprise when I went to buy PediaSure this time around. I noticed that the packaging had changed and the box said it was the Fun and Learn edition.

My kid doesn’t like the taste of milk, and as soon as the pediatric advised that Pediasure is good for such kids, I quicky bought it. And the #magic happened. My daughter who was underweight got back on track and started to enjoy milk as well. If you like, you can just add it with water and give the child. Lately, I bought the new Fun n learn pack of pediasure #unboxgrowth and we came up with a very interesting craft. Together we made a pretty clock. Pediasure helps create child’s creativity.
