What is PaediaSure Shake?
PaediaSure Shake is a delicious drink for children who are fussy eaters. It contains a balance of 26 vitamins and minerals. Especially designed for children, it contains protein, vitamin D and calcium for normal bone development, as well as iron which contributes to normal cognitive development - all essential nutrients that every child needs to grow and thrive.
As a specially formulated nutritional supplement drink, PaediaSure Shake can help fill the gap with essential nutrients that your child misses out on during their fussy eating phase. PaediaSure Shake, alongside a healthy balanced diet, can help you to get your child back on track.
Fussy eating is common in young children, with up to a third of children around two years of age going through this phase.1 However the real impact may be much greater, as a survey showed that the percentage of children identified as fussy eaters increased from 35%-50% from 12-24 months of age.2
The good news is that this is usually a phase that children grow out of. As they do, they’ll begin to accept a wider range of foods.1 Nevertheless, for many parents this fussy eating phase can cause a lot of worry at mealtimes, with some parents and carers of fussy eaters being concerned about their child’s growth and development, susceptibility to illness, lack of appetite, lack of energy and their ability to concentrate at school.3 PaediaSure Shake can help give you the confidence and reassurance that your child is getting the nutrition they need, while you gradually encourage them to try new and more varied foods.

Such a bad idea to me! Saw their TV advert last night too.
Lets pump our kids even more chemicals, synthetic vitamins made in labs and take the responsibility of healthy easting of parents.
Imho fussy eaters are not born, they are created by parents.

sorry if offended someone but it is the truth!

Kids don't need to eat every single frit and veg, as we as adults have food we don't like, so if they eat 4-6 different things then it is great.
This mixture is just going to teach them wrong things and is not natural in any shape!

Why is that because you disagree with it?!?

It is brainwashing like FruitShoots are full of fruit or Tin spaghetti count towards your child 5 a day is creating big health issues in this country!

Now this rubbish - give it to your child and forget about teaching them to eat properly!

And actually if you look at their description taken from Tesco, it is just a standard formula milk with a different market position lol
And the first and main ingredient is SUGAR!!!!!!


Safety Warning
Warning: Never heat formula in a microwave oven. Serious burns can result. To protect the heat unstable vitamins and ensure benefits of live cultures, prepare formula with boiled water below 40°C.

Breast milk is best food for babies. All mothers are encouraged to exclusively breastfeed their babies from birth until the age of 6 months and to continue until the age of 2 years. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks to babies below the age of 6 months should be discouraged since it will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. Consult your doctor for advice if you are unable to breastfeed

A My5 fruit shoot is one of your 5 a day though? It's fruit juice. I fail to see how particular products are causing health problems. It's lack of excercise and eating too many calories that's the issue.

How does this teach bad things? Do you think a parent will buy this and give it to the child for every meal or something? It is clearly a food supplement and no matter how balanced or varied your diet, you might not get absolutely everything you need and one of these shakes is an alternative to a vitamin pill. As someone has already mentioned, it's a great idea for ill or recovering children who might be sick of the usual pills and potions.

Not sure where you got that description of formula milk for this as Tesco do not sell this product and is nothing like formula milk. The main ingredient is not sugar, of course it will have some as it's a milk shake and is meant to taste of something sweet. Full of chemicals and synthetic vitamins? I bet docosahexaenoic acid sounds terrible but it's actually Omega 3 and I think you'll find a lot of chemical names make things sound worse. A Vitamin C molecule is just that, there is no difference between a synthetic or naturally occuring molecule, it will be used by your body in the same way.

I don't think you need to worry as I think most people will look past the marketing blurb and realise this is a vitamin pill in a milkshake. You don't need to declare it and the parents as the new antichrists. :)

You are wrong because fussiness is born or a result of bad experience such as food phobias.

Until the age of 2 kids will try anything and every whether eatable or not, due to their natural curiosity. And it is the job of PARENTS to make sure kids have access to variety and encourage them. My kid wasn't keen on peas, so we planted a couple of in pots and he loves picking them off the plant and eating. If you introduce foods at right time in right format i.e. soft, chopped etc. there won't be a problem! People seem to love labelling kids with diagnoses these days including food phobia hahahha.


As for Fruit shoot being just juice, full sugar version has 5 teaspoons of refined sugar roughly, the sugar free version is full of Aspartame - an ARTIFICIAL sweetener, so how is this healthy!?!

As for this PaediaSure Shake, this is the main ingredients, not including the added Vit.:

Hydrolysed corn starch, sugar, milk proteins, soy oil, high oleic sunflower oil, medium chain triglycerides from palm kernel oil, soy protein isolate, fructooligosaccharides powder, potassium citrate, flavouring.

you telling me this is good for any child!?!?! To me that just screams CR*P!
And you will be surprised what parents consider HEALTHY, it is truly shocking!

As for Tesco, the link is below, I found it through google

It is the job of parents yes and this product doesn't change that. It is a supplement, not a meal replacement or substitute for a varied diet. To this day I can't stand the taste or texture of a lot of vegetables, I assume this is my parent's fault but I am healthy despite this.

I was referring to the My5 fruit shoots which are one of your 5 a day. The full sugar ones I have not seen in for a while and they're not even on the tesco website. Please check the ingedients, aspartame is not one of them and even if it was, it has been proven to be fine especially in the amounts from average intake. Fruit shoots are a convenience and a soft drink, only my5 is advertised as "healthy".

The tesco link is for Malaysia and I still could not find the blurb you posted.

To you that list screams terrible, unnatural etc, to me it is complicated names for stuff you don't realise. For example:

Hydrolysed corn starch, its from corn, we eat corn, it is broken down by water so it is easier to digest and helps bind the ingredients (it's a milk shake after all).

Milk proteins, take the water and sugar out and you have milk proteins.

High oleic sunflower oil, a form that has lots of unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and very little saturated.

Medium Chain triglycerides (MCTs) from a seed of a palm oil tree. Very useful for people that are ill because they do not require energy for absorption, utilization, or storage. Fun fact: Naturally found in horse milk! Cow milk is rich in short chain MCTs.

fructooligosaccharides powder - A natural sweetner found in fruits such as bananas.

Potassium citrate - a buffering agent (prevents acidity) aka E332. I know these receive a lot of flak.

And as I mentioned DHA - docosahexaenoic acid is Omega 3. I also prefer to hear the name Omega 3 though. ;)

Regardless I hope I clarifyed my point that just because we don't know what things are doesn't mean they are bad. Again I am not saying this is some health elixer, I am saying it is a supplement and should be used as such. It wouldn't be unhealthy to give this frequently but then again why would you? If the parents are bad, the parents are bad, it is not a products fault. We can't blame coca cola if parents give their kids a 6 pack a day.

Feed your child what you like, NHS will pick up the bill paid by tax paye5rs, good luck ;)

and btw, don't put people down, you don't know if I don't understand what the ingredients are. I worked in baby food industry for a number of years and know what things are pretty well ;)

As for Tesco, the link is below, I found it through google

Trying something doesn't mean they will not refuse it, when they are weaning things get spat out or refused, as they get older they just get left on the plate with the child preferring to go without then eat something who's taste or texture they don't like. You can't force a child to eat everything you want them to, forcing children to clear their plate has been linked to eating disorders in later life.

Every child is different you can not make sweeping generalisations about little individuals, my son didn't go around shoving things in his mouth at all.

Why is that because you disagree with it?!?

It is brainwashing like FruitShoots are full of fruit or Tin spaghetti count towards your child 5 a day is creating big health issues in this country!

Now this rubbish - give it to your child and forget about teaching them to eat properly!

And actually if you look at their description taken from Tesco, it is just a standard formula milk with a different market position lol
And the first and main ingredient is SUGAR!!!!!!


Safety Warning
Warning: Never heat formula in a microwave oven. Serious burns can result. To protect the heat unstable vitamins and ensure benefits of live cultures, prepare formula with boiled water below 40°C.

Not for children with galactosemia

Breast milk is best food for babies. All mothers are encouraged to exclusively breastfeed their babies from birth until the age of 6 months and to continue until the age of 2 years. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks to babies below the age of 6 months should be discouraged since it will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. Consult your doctor for advice if you are unable to breastfeed

Well then your opinion is clearly wrong

Such a bad idea to me! Saw their TV advert last night too.
Lets pump our kids even more chemicals, synthetic vitamins made in labs and take the responsibility of healthy easting of parents.
Imho fussy eaters are not born, they are created by parents.

sorry if offended someone but it is the truth!

Kids don't need to eat every single frit and veg, as we as adults have food we don't like, so if they eat 4-6 different things then it is great.
This mixture is just going to teach them wrong things and is not natural in any shape!

A My5 fruit shoot is one of your 5 a day though? It's fruit juice. I fail to see how particular products are causing health problems. It's lack of excercise and eating too many calories that's the issue.

How does this teach bad things? Do you think a parent will buy this and give it to the child for every meal or something? It is clearly a food supplement and no matter how balanced or varied your diet, you might not get absolutely everything you need and one of these shakes is an alternative to a vitamin pill. As someone has already mentioned, it's a great idea for ill or recovering children who might be sick of the usual pills and potions.

Not sure where you got that description of formula milk for this as Tesco do not sell this product and is nothing like formula milk. The main ingredient is not sugar, of course it will have some as it's a milk shake and is meant to taste of something sweet. Full of chemicals and synthetic vitamins? I bet docosahexaenoic acid sounds terrible but it's actually Omega 3 and I think you'll find a lot of chemical names make things sound worse. A Vitamin C molecule is just that, there is no difference between a synthetic or naturally occuring molecule, it will be used by your body in the same way.

I don't think you need to worry as I think most people will look past the marketing blurb and realise this is a vitamin pill in a milkshake. You don't need to declare it and the parents as the new antichrists. :)

You are wrong because fussiness is born or a result of bad experience such as food phobias.

Until the age of 2 kids will try anything and every whether eatable or not, due to their natural curiosity. And it is the job of PARENTS to make sure kids have access to variety and encourage them. My kid wasn't keen on peas, so we planted a couple of in pots and he loves picking them off the plant and eating. If you introduce foods at right time in right format i.e. soft, chopped etc. there won't be a problem! People seem to love labelling kids with diagnoses these days including food phobia hahahha.


As for Fruit shoot being just juice, full sugar version has 5 teaspoons of refined sugar roughly, the sugar free version is full of Aspartame - an ARTIFICIAL sweetener, so how is this healthy!?!

As for this PaediaSure Shake, this is the main ingredients, not including the added Vit.:

Hydrolysed corn starch, sugar, milk proteins, soy oil, high oleic sunflower oil, medium chain triglycerides from palm kernel oil, soy protein isolate, fructooligosaccharides powder, potassium citrate, flavouring.

If you actually read my first comment I stated that children don't need to eat and like everything.
But that is not a reason to pump them full of cr*p to make yourself feel better as a parent! lol

and since you both don't work, maybe start baking with kids, they enjoy it and chopping things up with a table knife from around age of 3 ;)

It is the job of parents yes and this product doesn't change that. It is a supplement, not a meal replacement or substitute for a varied diet. To this day I can't stand the taste or texture of a lot of vegetables, I assume this is my parent's fault but I am healthy despite this.

I was referring to the My5 fruit shoots which are one of your 5 a day. The full sugar ones I have not seen in for a while and they're not even on the tesco website. Please check the ingedients, aspartame is not one of them and even if it was, it has been proven to be fine especially in the amounts from average intake. Fruit shoots are a convenience and a soft drink, only my5 is advertised as "healthy".

The tesco link is for Malaysia and I still could not find the blurb you posted.

To you that list screams terrible, unnatural etc, to me it is complicated names for stuff you don't realise. For example:

Hydrolysed corn starch, its from corn, we eat corn, it is broken down by water so it is easier to digest and helps bind the ingredients (it's a milk shake after all).

Milk proteins, take the water and sugar out and you have milk proteins.

High oleic sunflower oil, a form that has lots of unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and very little saturated.

Medium Chain triglycerides (MCTs) from a seed of a palm oil tree. Very useful for people that are ill because they do not require energy for absorption, utilization, or storage. Fun fact: Naturally found in horse milk! Cow milk is rich in short chain MCTs.

fructooligosaccharides powder - A natural sweetner found in fruits such as bananas.

Potassium citrate - a buffering agent (prevents acidity) aka E332. I know these receive a lot of flak.

And as I mentioned DHA - docosahexaenoic acid is Omega 3. I also prefer to hear the name Omega 3 though. ;)

Regardless I hope I clarifyed my point that just because we don't know what things are doesn't mean they are bad. Again I am not saying this is some health elixer, I am saying it is a supplement and should be used as such. It wouldn't be unhealthy to give this frequently but then again why would you? If the parents are bad, the parents are bad, it is not a products fault. We can't blame coca cola if parents give their kids a 6 pack a day.

At the end of the day, the more you mess with food the worse it is for you!
Feed your child what you like, NHS will pick up the bill paid by tax paye5rs, good luck ;)

and btw, don't put people down, you don't know if I don't understand what the ingredients are. I worked in baby food industry for a number of years and know what things are pretty well ;)

If I feed them a balanced diet with everything in moderation then I doubt it. As a taxpayer, I don't mind if my money towards the NHS helps ill children.

Sorry, I didn't want to give the impression I was putting you down, you were wording things in a way that led me to believe you were unaware of things like this. This is probably why I will never be a teacher lol.

Why are you accusing everyone of feeding their kids crap? Do you have somekind of sixth sense or just deem yourself better then everyone else, you've spent this entire deal seemingly frothing at the mouth going off on one about crap food, fruit shoots and lazy parenting. Are you actually capable of engaging in a proper conversation without throwing generalisations and assumptions into every reply?

If you actually read my first comment I stated that children don't need to eat and like everything.
But that is not a reason to pump them full of cr*p to make yourself feel better as a parent! lol

and since you both don't work, maybe start baking with kids, they enjoy it and chopping things up with a table knife from around age of 3 ;)

''frothing at the mouth' that is a bit OOT, don't you think!?
Once again, I never stated all parents, I said a lot of parents.
And I have worked in baby food industry and met up with a lot of parents and their kids, read a lot of food diaries, did a lot of research. As well as seeing people's supermarket trolley at the shops, watching ids eat, reading menus at dining out places and what they offer for kid.
It really doesn't take long to realise that a lot of processed food goes into our kids.
So yes, I am talking from experience :)
and no, I haven't mentioned even once what my kids eat btw.

I lot of parents think they are giving their kids a healthy diet based on companies' claims etc.

And as said before, products like this milkshake are totally pointless and really not that good for kids!

Good idea. Bad choice of name. I wouldn't look twice at something for my child with the name 'paed.. '

That is the problem with Internet, emailing and texting - there is no tone! :)
