Drinking Pedialtye daily

My grandson is two years old and eats very little. His parents give him pedialtye almost daily because he will not eat dinner. I believe he knows if he does not eat he will get his drink at bedtime.

Is this healthly?

Is it Pedialyte or Pediasure? Pedialyte usually should only be used temporarily and for hydration. Pediasure is very nutritious and this is what my daughter takes to help her gain weight.

I think you may be right, he may not eat dinner because he knows he wil get the pedialyte. Safe, yes. But not as healthy and nutrious and actual fruits and vegtables. I would start cutting back. That much be expensive!
