PediaSure® 1.5 Cal with fiber is a calorically dense formula, specially designed to meet the energy requirements of pediatric patients who need more calories in less volume.

Peptamen Junior® w/Prebio™ is a nutritionally complete formula with enzymatically hydrolzyed, 100% whey protein and a soluble fiber blend for the nutritional management of impaired GI function in children ages 1-13.

PediaSure® Peptide 1.5 is a nutritionally complete, peptide-based formula for the nutritional needs of children 1-13 years old with malabsorption, maldigestion, and other GI conditions. It is designed to meet the energy requirements of pediatric patients who need more calories in less volume.

Neocate® Splash is a complete amino acid-based oral supplement in convenient, ready-to-drink form for the dietary management of cow milk allergy, multiple food protein intolerance and food-allergy-associated conditions.

Bright Beginnings® Soy Pediatric Drink is a nutritious, ready-to-feed soy beverage for children. Each 8 fl oz can provides 3 g of dietary fiber, 32 mg of DHA Omega 3 for growth and development and prebiotics for immune support.

    How do I see if my granddaughter qualifies for this nutrition drink. She is 7 and still does not chew. I do buy pediasure when I can afford it. We are new to Shield and I sure appreciate the diapers, wipes, sprays and the creams.
