Jessica Wurth Tiemann Posted November 13, 2012 Share Posted November 13, 2012 Does anyone know of a protein powder good for kids that isn't full of weird stuff? I need to figure out how to make my own pediasure for my 15 month old that doesn't have such ridiculous crap in it. I found some home made recipes online for it, and also via our pediatrition, and they call for protein powder. It's a long story but the short of it is my baby has been failure to thrive since 5 monthes old (33 weeker preemie stopped growing at 30 weeks IUGR) and over the last few months multiple dr's and specialist are growing more concerned about his weight. I've been scolded big time over and over for not following the calorie packing list from the different GI specialists (corn syrup, pediasure, margarine?!, no thanks) even though he eats really well (kid will inhale 3 eggs for breakfast and then eat his brother's left overs) and good high fats. I have until his 18 month check up to show a decent weight gain on a high calorie diet, and then if even on one he hasn't gained well, it's time for more invasive tests. He's already had a biopsy done that shows no gluten or dairy allergies or diseases like Chrohns, but we try to stear clear of them when possible, though he does drink a whole milk/coconut milk combo. I personally tend to think he has a really high metabolisim, and so the GI doctor wants to really put on the calories to see if that's the case, that he just needs a lot more calorie wise, hence the pediasure. Any one have some protein powder advice? I looked over some at Good Earth and got really overwhelmed. Thanks! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
