Is it safe to give PediaSure to children?
Q: Is it safe to give Pediasure to a 3-year-old child? What are its side effects?
A:PediaSure is the trade name of a nutritional supplement. The issue is not whether it is safe or not for a 3-year old child but whether there is any added benefit. If the child is normal, natural diet and fresh fruits are the best. Supplements are required only when there is a specific need; for instance if the child is lactose and/or gluten intolerant. In such cases, it may be necessary to give special diet.
