It’s almost unbelievable if I tell you that I am no longer nervous about the constant colds and coughs that my preschooler suffered from! Till Tania did not go to school, there were hardly a couple of instances of the common cold. We sent her to school at 3, after that there were few times that she did not have a cold. With my elder one getting a cold, my younger one too would get infected and it has been a vicious cycle.
Our #90daysWithPediasure has been a good journey. After bye bye to the Hour Long Meals, what we have noticed is that the incidence of colds and coughs are far lesser. This monsoon was far better than the previous and I’m sure she was able to attend more days at school.
The common cold is such a small issue but as a mom, it has become of prime concern since the slightest change of weather can lead to the child falling sick. And that leads to crankiness and tantrums and what not… We are continuously careful of where they are playing, what they are eating, who they are meeting and it’s not really something that I ever wanted to do. I am not a paranoid mom but when your child in just getting sick all the time, you really can’t help being cautious about everything.
The Pediasure journey has been great because the infections have definitely been at bay and when you see something is working, you also psychologically feel more confident. I actually feel like I am letting my kid enjoy her childhood much more rather saying no to everything. I actually remember telling my pediatrician, ‘She wants ice-cream, I say NO, she wants to jump in puddles, I say NO’ I really don’t like that and my child is not unreasonable, it’s not that she is constantly asking for junk food and playing in the mud but I am constantly saying NO’.
It’s great now because I am at ease to a large extent, not only because she eats better but also because the incidence of colds are much fewer and she is growing better. Here is her favorite Pediasure Recipe:

Just blend it all together and enjoy!!
