Health drinks like pediasure enfamol are gud ways to meet up the rda for protein n calcium. So I don't think there is ny harm in usi g them if ur child is a fussy eater..... If the child eats well n Hs a gud appettite then u don't need them... Else they r vry helpful n nutrotional too.... N by the way gaining muscle mass is considered as the healthiest way to gain way....

But that is different from bournvita. We can't say bournvita and pedisure are same. parents should consult their paediatrician before giving any health drinks to their kids. meanwhile pareshan also try home made badam drink and see before starting for any commercial products. As everyone knows "All that glitters are not gold". So commercial health drinks won't provide any nutrition to kids and parents can ask paediatrician to suggest a health drink to child depending on their development and age.

well my pediatric does suggest pediasure or enfamol. both are pediatric suggested brand. Our kids need 800mg of calcium everyday which is equivalent to four glasses of milk alone. do u think kids agree to drink that much hence itsy personal choice to add health drink with your pediatric prior opinion.

But who told health drinks give you nutrition? have you heard any doctor suggesting bournvita or horliks to kids?None will agree with the idea. bournvita is only sugar and chocolate and nothing else is added in it. Any paediatrician will ask the parents to stop health drinks and ask them to give milkshake, fruits instead. Kids will be fussy. We should not encourage them by giving these sugary drinks and make them suffer for their life

I believe health drinks do add up to the child nutrition. these days kids are quite choosy regarding foods n unfortunately we parents can't give the proper amount of nutrients requires. thus these health drinks given in adequate quantities helps in the child growing ages.

Hi I feel there is no need to give bournvita to your child. He can be given milk alone. If you read the package properly they have indicated that the kids gain muscle weight which is not good way of gaining weight. and once you start with health drinks they may stop having food properly and may end up in drinking bournvita many times a day which is very bad. So think about the problems you may face after introducing it
