It Saved My Son's Life

Product Package:

Pediasure is not your basic formula. It is specifically designed for older children. It is not something that most parents will ever have to deal with as it is to be used only under the supervision of a doctor.


How we came to use Pediasure is through complications stemming from a surgery that my son had. We started out with a simple surgery to repair a reflux problem and ended up with a g-tube and an inability to eat by mouth. When my son first started on this product, it was through the g-tube alone. Now, three years later he takes two cans orally and three to four cans through the tube.


Pediasure is easy for him to digest as it is loctose free and gluten free. The product, however, is not to be used by children with galicosemia.
