What is the difference between regular PediaSure® Grow & Gain Shake and PediaSure Shake Mix?

While both products have 240 calories, 25 or more vitamins, are a good source of protein, and taste great, there are a number of differences between PediaSure Grow & Gain Shake and PediaSure Shake Mix powder with advantages to each.

PediaSure Grow & Gain Shake (ready-to-drink) is complete, balanced nutrition to help kids grow. It can be used either as a supplement or as sole source nutrition if a medical practitioner chooses. Key differences from powder include:

  • 1g of prebiotic fiber
  • DHA for brain health (32mg of DHA per 8 fl oz serving)
  • Lutein for eye health

PediaSure Shake Mix (powder) when mixed with milk is complete, balanced nutrition to help kids grow. It should only be used as a supplement to a child’s uneven diet and should never be tube fed or used as a sole source of nutrition. When mixed as directed, key differences from the ready to drink 8 fl oz bottle include:

  • 70% more protein (12g vs 7g)
  • 40% more calcium (350mg vs 250mg)
  • Higher levels of the following nutrients: vitamin A, folic acid, thiamin, riboflavin, vitamin B12, biotin, zinc, selenium and molybdenum.

Due to these higher nutrient levels, maximum number of daily servings is: 1 to 3 years: 1 serving; 4 to 8 years: 2 servings; 9 to 13 years: 3 servings.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product My son was advised by doctor to take pediasure he doesnt like any flavor of pediasure luckily we have pediasure mix powder . He likes it fortunately so that makes my life easy. But this powder I can only buy online it's not available in stores.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Powder has been a lifesaver My son has always been tiny and hovered around the 8th-10th percentile on weight charts. After his pediatrician recommended Pediasure I bought the ready-made and he literally threw the cup across the room (think it had to much of a protein drink flavor). Thank goodness for the powder though. We bought a can of the powder to mix in his regular cup of milk. A scoop of the vanilla (as well as a scoop of a chocolate breakfast shake powder for flavor) in a cup of whole milk twice a day is the ONLY thing that has kept my almost 4yo at 30lbs and up to the 12th percentile. He asks for his cup because he loves it so much. My only recommendations is 1) Make a Chocolate flavor as well ( I hate the sugar in the other powder I have to use in conjunction.) and 2) Please don't stop producing the powder. It is on the expensive side but more cost efficient than ready-made and my son loves it. Thank you Pediasure!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible I buy ready to drink pediasure for my son. He drinks it daily to make up for his nutrtional shortcomings. I thought that this would be a great product to try. I bought 2 cans. It doesn't matter what I do, it will not mix properly. It remains clumpy and/or foamy. It's worse than a cheap protein powder. Now I'm stuck holding 2 cans of unusable powder. Do yourself a favor & stick to the ready to drink formula.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Your product is good but it's expensive My son likes this product but I feel like it's expensive for no valid reason.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the powder!!! My son liked the pre-made shakes. But he absolutely LOVES when I make it with the powder. Please don't stop making it!!! My son is SO picky, I am happy that he enjoys drinking this and I don't have to fight with him about it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I have been using this for a few weeks now its brilliant my daughter likes the Taste although it took her a few days to adjust to it. She's more playful, happy and satisfied when it comes to hunger. It's a great product and I would definatly recommend it to someone who's thinking of purchasing it a little bit expensive but definatly worth it, I will be buying more soon.
