Top Frequently Asked Questions

What is the recommended amount of PediaSure to use in a day? Is there a limit on how much can be used in a day?

In general, there is not a limit on the amount of PediaSure that a child can safely consume. For an individual child, the amount of PediaSure that is needed — or is acceptable — on a daily basis should be discussed with the child's health care professional. If the child is eating foods and drinking other beverages, it is especially important to determine how much PediaSure would be appropriate in the context of the overall diet.

Why did you make this change from "lactose-free" to "suitable for lactose intolerance"?

The position of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is that products claiming lactose-free should be free of lactose as far as current technology can detect. Since our products do contain some lactose, we decided to describe our products as "suitable for lactose intolerance" to better reflect that they do contain lactose, but can be used by individuals with lactose intolerance without typical symptoms.

My child is lactose-intolerant. Do PediaSure products contain lactose?

PediaSure products are suitable for children with lactose intolerance.* PediaSure products do contain a small amount of lactose, but the amount of lactose is clinically insignificant.

Picky Eater Tip

Be Patient

Encourage your kids to eat new foods by offering small portions of a new food along with their favorite foods. Don't force them to eat all of the new food, but encourage them to take small tastes. Don't give up! Studies show that kids need to be exposed to a new food 15 times or more before accepting it.1-3
