Nutritional Shakes
As a Registered Dietitian I am hearing from many of patients  that they are interested in knowing which of the nutritional supplemental shakes are the best and which are safe for children. Here is a list of some of the most common that I am asked about as of lately.  My personal opinion is when able to offer your child real food, that would be preferable over a bottled shake.  There are many circumstances where flexible alternatives need to be available and as a mom of three children I do understand that as well.  In picking a shake if the goal is to replace milk then it should resemble milk in regards to nutrition facts as much as possible. If the goal is to provide a well balanced snack then  the shake should provide  protein and fiber  or maybe just protein with a fruit on the side for added fiber.  If you need to find a portable supplement to provide after practice  that would provide your child with protein and carbohydrate then sometimes a shake can be a good idea.

Bottom line is  the fewer  ingredients the better, no mega doses of added vitamins,  and not a significant amount of added sugar (remember on a label when you see total  grams of sugar it is including what is naturally found in the milk).
