My son hates pediasure but he will steal my moms ensure and down it. Can my 2 year old drink the ensure instead or will it hurt him???

If you look at the back they almost match 100%, it is the same company. Our doctor says it is fine.

another option... is Carnation breakfast mix. My kids would drink that without a problem. If you use it in addition instead of as a meal replacement it is good for weight gain in LO's, (I'm guessing that's why you are using pediasure?)

I dunno. They seem pretty much exactly the same to me. Ask your pedi to be sure?



My daughter just started on Pediasure on Thursday and so far she's loving it, which is great because we're supposed to give her 2-3 a day.

He is a very very picky eater... He will drink stuff all day but I can't really get him to eat. His Iron is low and I just don't know what else to do. His pedi said for us to try the pediasure but he wont drink it... I guess the ensure tastes better... I mean the kid really only eats 1 or 2 times a day.

I found this site and thread by typing in pediasure vs ensure, looking for the same info. My son hates pediasure but loves ensure.
