Hi Amita. Pediasure is known to provide extra calories and is usually advised for children who may be fussy eaters. I had a huge problem to get my daughter to eat anything since the time she was a baby. So we did start her on pediasure after hearing the reviews from other parents and did some amount of research by comparing the nutritional information with other drinks such as bournvita and horlicks. We took our chances and started with pediasure when she was 3 years old. we did see a remarkable difference in her height and weight over the last year. Her appetite seemed to have improved and she has gained a decent amount of weight (she was underweight earlier). So I would recommend Pedisure to any parent who has to deal with a fussy eater. You may give your daughter pediasure with milk as recommended on the pack. I have not heard any negative reviews so far but if you may, you could check with more parents and doctors before making up your mind.
