Consulting a Pediatrician will provide a good base

Though you know your child best, you sometimes need an expert’s opinion to better keep your child’s growth on track. They will ask about your child’s current diet, eating habits, amount of daily physical activities, medical history, and take notes of height and weight. Once this information is provided, you will be informed whether your child is under height, or weight, with recommendations of daily nutrition that you need to look out for. Every child is different, so there could be more than one consultation with a time period in between for the recommendations to play out.1

Before considering nutritional supplements, learn to read food labels and note important vitamins and minerals to watch out for.

Supplements should also have healthy fats, amino acids and high quality proteins to support muscle health and aid in absorption of other nutrients. For example, MCT (medium-chain triglyceride), fat extracted from coconut, is quickly metabolizable, thus providing energy and maximizing the impact of nutrients.2, 3 Keeping these points in mind, parents can trust the formulation of Pediasure to support nutritional gaps with food.
