Four Types of Children Who are at Risk for Growth

SHORT FOR AGE

Children who are not receiving proper nutrition may grow stunted, or small for their age.

PICKY EATER

According to a number of studies, picky eating has been linked to a higher risk of being underweight and having stunted growth. *

NOT GAINING WEIGHT

Your child may not be consuming an adequate amount of calories.

Drinking PediaSure 3+ can help fill these gaps and help your child catch up on their weight and height gain (with three balanced meals and exercise).

FREQUENTLY SICK

When a child is sick, nutrients meant for growth are diverted toward the immune system. In order to build a robust immune system, your child’s diet needs to be nutrient-rich.**
