Although school has been out for a few weeks now, it’s still definitely on my brain. That could be because Moreaya asks me every day, “Mom, do I go to school today?” Of course that makes this Mama happy because that means she really enjoyed her first year at preschool, but something tells me that one reason that she enjoyed going to preschool so much were the treats she asked for when I picked her up to go home.
For some reason she got it in her little mind that every day after preschool she would get a milkshake. Sure, it might have been caused by me because I took her to get a milkshake once, but I couldn’t explain to her enough times that we couldn’t go every single day after school. After the 5th day in a row of asking for a milkshake, though, a light bulb went off in my head. I decided she could have a “milkshake” as long as Mommy made it at home. She agreed and we were set!
Moreaya was the youngest in her preschool class so it’s no surprise that she was the smallest. However, I have been noticing a difference in her size compared to other kids that are the same age. It’s not that I’m overly worried about her nutrition, but I do know that she sometimes turns her nose up at green foods and other “non-milkshake” type things! Although we always offer well balanced meals to her and Sophia, they don’t always get gobbled up like I would hope. PediaSure® Grow & Gain® is made exactly for that reason and has been clinically proven to help kids grow. While on my last shopping trip at Kroger, I picked up a pack of the vanilla version to make our homemade “milkshakes” also known as smoothies to a tad more refined preschoolers.
PediaSure® Grow & Gain is the #1 Pediatrician recommended brand and a super easy way to help your child gain weight in a healthy way over time. While the shakes can be given to your child just as they are, I decided to put a melon twist on this milkshake!
This kid-friendly smoothie has delicious fresh melon and PediaSure Grow & Gain Vanilla Shakes to help your child catch up to their ideal weight and height.
- 1/4 Cantaloupe Melon
- 1/4 Honeydew Melon
- 1 PediaSure Grow & Gain Vanilla Shake
- 1 Juice from a Lime
- Ice [if desired]
- Blend all ingredients together and serve!
The recipe for this Melon Smoothie actually came right from the PediaSure website. You’ll find a ton of different ways to serve the Grow & Gain Shakes so your child can’t grow tired of a particular flavor. To see great results, your child should consume 2 PediaSure Grow & Gain Shakes a day, along with a well-balanced diet, to help them gain weight and/or height.
We definitely add ice to our Melon Smoothie, but another fun way to have these smoothies ready to go is to freeze the Vanilla Shake into ice cub trays so it will blend up with a smooth, milkshake consistency.
If you’re looking for ways to help your child gain weight or catch up on their height, or perhaps need a milkshake-at-home option for your preschooler, be sure to check out the PediaSure Grow & Gain flavors on your next shopping trip.
