Comments about PediaSure Balanced Nutrition Beverage, 8 fl oz bottles, Vanilla with Fiber, 6 ea:
My 11 year old son loves this stuff. He suffers from constipation and I give him this drink every other day. He now has more regular bowel movements. If it wasn't so expensive he would be drinking it every day.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
