My children are grown now, [insert saddest face ever] but I love looking back through their baby books, growth charts and old photographs to relive those early years.
It seemed like I was always taking one or the other for a check-up, and I remember how much importance was placed on their measurements and milestones.
It’s vital to make sure children are receiving adequate nutrition to promote proper growth and development. We parents want to provide our children with every physical, mental and emotional advantage, especially since opportunities and expectations for our children continue to increase substantially and at younger ages than ever now.
With so many foods and beverages claiming similar nutritional benefits, it can be super confusing to know what’s best for your child, but I’ve always trusted PediaSure to provide the advanced nutrition clinically proven to promote growth and development.
Even though my kids fell within ‘normal’ growth curves, I still supplemented their diets with PediaSure because they hated vitamins (my fault – monkey see, monkey do) and I was looking for a nutritional solution.
PediaSure is the kind of enrichment children need to succeed every single day in their world. It has an optimal blend of essential nutrients: a unique (patented) combination of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids that allows for enhanced digestion and metabolization of essential vitamins and minerals for complete and balanced nutrition. It promotes ongoing growth and development during a critical time of life, the first 12 years.
For children who are failing to thrive due to medical conditions or from improper nutrition, PediaSure can help. It’s so hard as parents to see our children fall behind and not know how to help them, but when we figure it out, there’s no greater joy than watching them flourish and thrive!

Making sure we’re meeting the nutritional needs of our kids in the critical first 12 years of life is so important, and I certainly appreciate how much easier that is to do with PediaSure.
