PediaSure SideKicks is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 71.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from They’re good for people with dietary deficiencies So my case is a bit different. I’m actually 18 years old but i’ve always had issues with gastric emptying, big meals make me feel sick so its hard for me to get all my calories and nutrients. I switch between the sidekicks and the enteral formula, which I’ve been drinking since I was about 3. The enteral formula certainly tastes better, at least the one I buy, that said I dont mind the taste of the sidekicks, they taste fine and they’re very good for filling in the gaps. I can’t stand the taste of adult formulas so this product has been a godsend. Thanks!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from needs more flavors great concept. except for my son who has autism hates these flavors. it would be great if you had the banana/ smores flavors for the sidekick brand. plus, not a fan of the added artificial flavors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it. My son 4yr old love to have pediasure....he loves the taste and its filling for him. I will continue to buy.
Date published: 2019-06-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Peace of mind Our son has sensory processing disorder and is a very picky eater. He almost never likes a new food/drink but he absolutely loves the vanilla sidekicks!We have tried EVERYTHING to get him to have a balanced diet (it’s on the whole okay but his diet is not varied and does have nutritional gaps). He will only eat certain foods due to his SPD and is unwilling to take a multivitamin (no matter the form), so it has been a huge relief to find this and know that he’s getting what he needs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is great My son is 6 and a picky eater and is also anemic. He has been drinking one of these every morning for a long time now it’s been very helpful !

Date published: 2018-12-28
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Daughter loves it My daughter has drunk this every single morning for several years. I think it tastes horrible but she loves it. She is a picky eater, so we use it as a supplement.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loves it Whether it's chocolate or strawberry, my son is staying on track with his growth despite being a picky eater, so I'm grateful for Pediasure.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 40% more protein changed the taste I have a very picky eater, she would drink two a day which made me feel like she was getting vitamins and nutrition she was lacking.With this change of taste, she no longer will drink this sidekick.I am very sad with this change

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Helps my child fillin her nutrition gaps My daughter is 3 years old and a very very picky eater, with food allergies. This has really helped me give her the missing nutrients she doesn't get from her "meals". She is meeting all her milestones and even exceeded a few.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is good for children that need that extra boost to their diets My grandson loves it! He enjoys the chocolate taste.
Date published: 2018-12-19
Rated 1 out of 5 by from My son hates the new version of this drink My son, who is now 4 used to drink this all the time. But, once the newer version was presented he absolutely refuses to drink any flavor of the Pedisures. I'm disappointed. i hope he eventually gives in as this use to be my go-to drink for him- child who is a picky eater .
Date published: 2018-12-11
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Annoyed. My son started pediasure when he was 1. He is now 2.5. We was told we could take him off many months ago but its like he is addicted to them. If i knew what i knew now, i would have tried other things first. I spend $300 monthly on this stuff. We tried taking him off cold Turkey and I promise you would not have wanted to be in my home. We also tried diluting it and he won't drink it that way either. Therefore i don't recommend this product because he has barely saw benefit from it and i can't get him off them
Date published: 2018-11-04
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Diarrhea ALL day Gave this to my son to make up for him being a picky eater. He’s had diarrhea all day. We’re trying to potty train and this has set us back. Every time the poor kid farts he soils himself. I bought two six packs.
Date published: 2018-10-03
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This contains carrageenan This contains carrageenan and gave my son terrible diarrhea within minutes. I prefer the powder version which does not contain Carrageenan (or cellulose gum/gel).
Date published: 2018-09-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from THE GREATEST My son loves every version of pediasure products, he is amazed and he is growing up.
Date published: 2018-08-01
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why did you change a good thing?! My 3 1/2 year old has been drinking these for almost 2 years. He would drink one every morning. Although they aren't cheap, I felt it was worth the money since he is a picky eater and on the slimmer side, and I know he's getting those extra daily vitamins with these. But since the new change, he hates the taste and refuses to drink them. He literally described it as "disgusting". What a bummer. I feel this is a lose, lose situation.
Date published: 2018-07-01
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My daughter loves this! My daughter is a very picky eater and drinker, so I cannot get her to eat correctly. But she loves all three flavors, she just gobbles them up, especially the chocolate. I'm happy to know this helps with the nutrients. The only thing I wish is that I could find these in bulk. These are always so hard to find on the shelves in grocery stores and Walmart.
Date published: 2018-06-25
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.
Date published: 2018-06-19
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.
Date published: 2018-05-25
Rated 5 out of 5 by from PLEASE DON'T DISCONTINUE THIS! It's getting harder and harder to find this! PLEASE don't stop making this! My grandson won't drink milk - but he LOVES this! He gets two a day! He's now 3 1/2 - and I've got grandsons younger .... PLEASE keep this product in your line!

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!
