I wanted to kick June off with a fun, summer recipe using PediaSure® Grow & Gain with Fiber! It’s getting warm out here in Oregon, we even went to the splash pad yesterday. Anyone who has a child whose came below their regular point on a growth curve knows how defeating it can feel. While it isn’t a reflection on your actual parenting, you know you’re feeding your child, it can feel like such a painful blow. My almost three year old, while tall, is relatively underweight. I remember the first time he slid under his curve, and how anxious I felt about it. He was six months old, and nursing hadn’t been going exactly as I had imagined. I wanted to trust that his weight would catch up, but it felt like a reflection on my horrid care. He did not catch up, in fact, he remained “skinny.” Around his second birthday, his little best friend started drinking PediaSure® Grow & Gain with Fiber, Liam tried it and absolutely loved it. He started drinking it a regular basis shortly after, and begin gaining weight appropriately while enjoying a tasty shake.
I only just discovered their website is loaded with recipes that incorporate PediaSure® Grow & Gain with Fiber. Since drinking two PediaSure® shakes a day is clinically proven to help children gain weight in eight weeks, I’m thrilled to have some new ways to serve them. The number one brand recommended by pediatricians, alongside a well balanced diet can help children gain weight (or height, but that’s not an issue in my house. Have you seen my amazingly tall kids?)
Excited to make these creamsicles, I went to my favorite grocery store (yes, the one with childcare.) Fred Meyer, and picked up some PediaSure® Grow & Gain with Fiber. I found it in the baby aisle, there’s assorted flavors too. Chocolate, banana, strawberry, and vanilla. These are so yummy, especially when it is hot outside. My boys like to pop a straw through the aluminum top, and enjoy them chilled. To make Pediasure, even more affordable check out this coupon to save 3.00 on any two PediaSure® products!

This recipe is so simple, and the boys (especially my two year old.) loved helping out. We cut up kiwis and strawberries together, and Sawyer loved putting the tops on the popsicle makers.
Two 8 oz. bottles of PediaSure® Grow & Gain with Fiber or PediaSure® Grow & Gain (any flavor you’d like.)
12 strawberries (I also used three kiwi’s, you could use raspberries too! We love fruit!!)
2 cups of low fat, plain yogurt.
What to do:
Add PediaSure® Grow & Gain with Fiber, yogurt, and half of your fruit into a blender. Blend!
Take the remaining fruit and cut it. I cut each strawberry into fourths.
Distribute into popsicle molds or paper cups with spoons. I attached an image of each, my kids were extremely into the paper cup edition.
Distribute the remaining fruit among the molds and/or cups. I made 12 cups and 6 molds before running out. They definitely make a good amount!
Freeze for roughly four hours, or until they are firm!
Serve and enjoy! I took the cups to a park play date, and I was definitely fun mom.
*if you’re struggling to get them out of the molds, run warm/hot water over the outside of the mold!
