to mirah, pediasure ni bukan FM. dia food supplement. dia ada macam2 extra nutri yg satu botol sama cam 2 mangkuk. itu yg budak boleh naikkan berat badan tu.
experts syokkan utk budak normal but under weight, bg max 225ml aje sehari. kalau over takut obese. tp kalau budak yg mmg ada prob nak naikkan berat badan or sakit dalam hospital, pead akan rekomen diffrent dose pulak.
kalau lat australia ni, kalau nak bg anak pediasure kena ada surat dr nurse or doctor dulu.
