 Hi babypearl,

i am using it from last 7-8 months , even i have observed lot of difference.

what ever you have written ...i came across same situation with my son.

casually  i have asked  my family homeopathy doc long back  ..he said...we can use nutrilite for kids.

after reading your post..... :(

i am thinking that ......we should ask a good pediatrian about this.

hope for the gud.

I used the prodcut briefly...was about to order another pack when a person told me that these products affects the mental health of the kids....I was shocked....Am sure a product certified and being used for so many years must not be that way.....So, are these rumours spread by people with bad intentions?

Hi babypearl,

There are two kinds of health drink available in market. One is synthetic and other is natural (plant based). Plant based on our studies are highly safe range to be given to all age groups. Also you will see these product don't use any chemical preservatives and artificial flavours.. read below link

My opinion is always go for natural health products(Homemade porridge). My peadiatrician told to avoid all processed foods like jams, bakery items, sauce even tetra pack fruit juices, Lays it will affect the Physical & Mental health of the kids. My kid was addicted to pediasure he use to drink 3-4 times a day and it decreased his appetite & i came to know that continuous use will lead to kidney problems in kids. So i stopped it, now i'm giving bournvita that too only 1/4 spoon in a glass of milk jus for the flavour(he dislikes plain milk). Normally these kind of health drinks sh'd be given only when the child is ill & not able to take regular food beco's of the illness. So try to develop healthy eating habits in kids.

I request all members to carry out some self study on products. Plse see contents and check nutritional values given on pack. Don't get swayed by qulaification of person who is advising you.If somebody tells you it contains steroids ask him to prove it.

As per me Nutrilite kids drink is best bet for our children as it containd no sythetic product  not even flavour. Hence it is absolutely safe

Nutrilite does not contain steroids.

What I do not like about such kind of ready made mixes is the amount of sugar it contains. It can cause attention deficit and temper tantrus in kids due to sugar crashes and cravings. A high sugar diet is a bit nono. Instead you can use a multivitamin supplement instead for immunity than products like nutrilite or pediasure.
