My wife and I currently have a foster son (2 yrs old) that had a presciption for PediaSure (A bad idea in my opinion) when he came to us. He had problems gaining weight where he lived before. Unless the kid is not getting enough fat or sugar then I don't know what nutrient "holes" this is filling.

An 8oz serving has 240 calories.
*Total Fat: 9g
*Total Carbohydrate: 32g
Dietary Fiber: 3g
Sugars: 18g
*Protein: 7g

The worst part is the way they inhale it. Kids will literally come up gasping for air before they stop drinking it. Like they are addicted to a drug and can't get enough.

By the way he has no problem gaining weight when eating what the rest of our family eats.
