Can be taken

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the query

You can give pediasure 2tsp morning and night with milk. It will certainly improve his weight. For improvement in height I recommend that he plays actively, especially cycling and running daily. I must add here that the final height of a person is genetically already defined at birth and no supplements or hormonal therapy can change it.

I hope I was of help, if you have any further queries please get back to me
