My youngest daughter Anneliese is by far my littlest toddler.  Her siblings were always off the charts in height and were well in the averages for weight, and then she came along.

She is little and mighty, becuse what she lacks for in stature, she makes up for with her BIG personality!

I have had long talks with her Pediatrician about her tiny stature and also about her picky eating habits. Sometimes this kid of mine will put away 2 homemade jelly sandwiches an apple and more in one sitting , and then will go almost the entire next day only picking at her food. You fellow Moms out there know how that feels right? We do not like when our children don’t eat. It makes us crazy nervous! Plus since she is already on the tiny size I do not want her to lose weight, so I had to come up with a solution for helping my pint sized princess gain some weight.

I am giving Anneliese PediaSure® Grow & Gain with Fiber twice a day for 8 weeks, in addition to all of her other healthy and good for her favorite meals in order to help her gain weight.

PediaSure is the #1 Pediatrician recommended brand and following the 2 shakes a day plan is clinically proven to help kids grow. So I am ALL in! One of the ways she loves to drink her PediaSure is when I make it as a banana shake!

This shake is super simple to make, plus it has the Anneliese stamp of approval and that is kind of a big deal.

I picked my PediaSure up at my local Kroger and if you click this link you can snag a coupon and receive $3 off of any two PediaSure products at Kroger.com. That is pretty fantastic!

If you are in this same boat as I am, then you will be happy to know that PediaSure has a fantastic website where you can sign up to receive emails, tips, tricks and support to help you and your little on your eight week journey. Visit here to sign up!

I am excited for the next eight weeks and I am even more excited by the response my Princess has had to the introduction of PediaSure to her diet. She loves it!

I would love to hear what you have used that has helped your little gain weight.

  1. I’m definitely going to have to try this!! All four of my kids are super skinny and always have been. If my youngest two don’t have Pediasure everyday, they lose weight. I’m always looking for ways to get more calories and fat into my kids’ diets.

      YAY! I hope your kiddos like this shake! I tried to drink a little of the leftover shake right from the blender and my little Anneliese was none to pleased with me. I guess she wanted to save the good stuff for herself :)

  2. Your little princess is simply adorable! I’m glad that she is enjoying the PediaSure and her banana shakes. That is super simple and I bet it tastes amazing! [client]

      It is super good! I laughed when my daughter got grumpy at me when I tried to taste her shake. The little taste I had was fabulous! I guess though if she is happy drinking it, then it is a win all around!

  3. What a great idea to keep the weight on. My son was a picky eater too. I worried myself sick like you did. We didn’t have that kind of thing back then. I found junk food that he liked so he’d at least eat. Not a good plan, but better than him not eating at all.

    Have a fabulous day. ☺

  4. Wah! We don’t have Kroger! I won’t let that stop me, though. It’s funny – Scarlet is in the 10th percentile for height. If even! Des is in the 70th! Maybe more now.
    Yet she’s big on drinkable protein, fiber, calories , etc. and he isn’t! That said, this is a product I love.

  5. I wish they had this when Natalie was smaller. She always had trouble gaining weight. She was so skinny at one point she wasn’t even ON the chart. She’s caught up more now, but still on the tiny side.

  6. We don’t have any issues with getting our kids to eat around here, but nutrition is definitely a concern. Our second would survive on a diet of mac ‘n cheese if we let her. This smoothie sounds like a great way to pack some nutrition into a special treat.

      Oh that is a good idea. My little is scared of going poop on the potty so that might be just the thing she needs. I hope your daughter likes the shake, mine asks for one every day!

  7. Hi jen,Greg’s has always been incredibly underweight and there was nothing like this back then. My secret weapon was (and still is olive oil), which I add to all his meals, he is still incredibly underweight, but is consistently so. I would have used PediaSure to help him gain weight if I could have (I would have tried anything!).

    I hope you see Anneliese gain a little weight using these shakes.

    1. Oh Olive Oil is a good idea! I had forgotten, but when I lived in Spain I had a house mother who did that with her kiddos food for the same reason!

      Before the PediaSure I was seriously considering adding gobs of butter to everything she ate. Not sure that would have worked out the way I intended :)
