PediaSure SideKicks is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Why did you change it again? My daughter loved the vanilla flavored until the last change. (40% more protein, 10 grams). Now she will not drink it. We even compared the new to the old version. The new one taste different and it is darker in color. She has been drinking these since she was 3 years old, she is now 11. It was the only way to get the nutrition she needs since she is a very picky eater. Sad to say it was a disappointment. Should not change a good thing.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from My daughter can't stand this new one I truly wish you would stop changing these drinks. My daughter has been drinking Sidekicks since she was 2 and now she is 13. And because she is so picky... this drink is the only way I can keep her diet balanced. This is the 2 or 3 time you have changed these since she has been born and unfortunately you have changed it so that she doesn't enjoy it any longer. There was nothing wrong with the last one so I am not certain as to why you felt the need to change it. Now I have to see if I can search other sites for the old brand.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SideKicks helped my son fill the gaps My toddler was recently diagnosed with Autism and is an extremely picky eater. He absolutely loves all the PediaSure products which helps his growth and meets his nutritional needs. Though we have figured out the PediaSure backs up his tummy system so we were excited to find that Sidekick's keeps him regular while still accomodating his physical development. Thank you, PediaSure brand!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent taste, my kids love it and it has become a staple in our home! I absolutely love pediasure. My kids ask for pediasure and they are extremely picky eaters.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 3 year old It actually started when my fiance went into the hospital and he had to drink Ensure. My 3 year old kept wanting to drink daddy's "chocolate milk". So I Got her the Pediasure and now she has her own Chocolate milk to drink. Some nights I cannot get her to eat a single item but she will drink her shakes. LOVE THEM!! She is also small for her age and these seem to help with her growth!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is amazing!! My 4 year old son has had belly issues for a long time. Whenever his stomach acts up, he has absolutely no appetite and will refuse to eat. But when his belly isn't acting up, he eats pretty well.. But he is a super picky eater. It was breaking my heart watching him not want to eat on days when his belly hurt. So finally I went and bought him Pediasure Sidekicks Vanilla.... He took one sip and said "Wow it's so good!!!" He finished it in less than 5 minutes, and then immediately asked for another. lol He loves these SO MUCH!!!! Every morning as soon as he wakes up he runs to the kitchen to grab one and drinks it right away. It makes me feel good knowing that he is getting important vitamins and nutrients to fill the gaps. And I'm so happy that he loves these drinks (considering he's so picky with food). Thank you pediasure!!!!

We are always going through waves of him having horrible stomach pains and constipation. Whenever his stomach acts up, he has absolutely no appetite and will refuse to eat. But when his belly isn't acting up, he eats pretty well.. But he is a super picky eater.It was breaking my heart watching him not want to eat on days when his belly hurt. So finally I gave in and bought him Pediasure Sidekicks Vanilla....He took one sip and said "Oh myGod it's so good!!!" He finished it in less than 5 minutes, and then immediately asked for another. lol He loves these SO MUCH!!!! Every morning as soon as he wakes up he runs to the kitchen to grab one and drinks it right away. He drinks 2 a day.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I can't hide the chalky flavor! My son is 5 and I would consider him an extremely picky eater. I have a really hard time getting him to eat meat or other protein foods. I decided to try this product because of all the positive reviews, but my child did not like the taste at all! We tried the vanilla because he does not like chocolate or strawberry milk. I tried mixing it with his 2% milk and even tried an ice cream milkshake! He says it tastes funny. I also tried it and it has a chalky flavor. I'm disappointed this did not work. It is also not a cheap product and I feel I wasted my money. Sorry Pediasure, you can't please all picky children.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fill in the Gaps! My daughter is 12 and has been drinking sidekicks for 4 years off and on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would recomment this product to anyone My son is two years old and he's going through a stage where he eats little to nothing. He usually will eat all day long and never has had a problem with eating his fruits or vegetables. But now he rarely eats anything but will drink liquids all day long. I purchased these Pediasure sidekicks and he loves them. He will drink them all day long. I purchase a pack of every flavor everytime I go grocery shopping. Chocolate, vanilla, strawberry, berry, and banana. He loves them all. He sometimes will go into the refrigerator himself and bring it to me to transfer into his sippy cup. This product has been very helpful. I know that even when my son does not eat, he is still getting the nutrients that he needs. Thank you, Pediasure is definitely a lifesaver.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from our sidekick child Sidekicks has been a great life saver for our family. Our grand daughter refused to eat or drink anything for a week after many of her surgeries except for the sidekicks. It helped to maintain nutrients and fluids until she was better. Even had to give her regular pediasure to help maintain weight. Only the vanilla flavor in our home.
