Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would give it a no-star.... My son has relied on this formula as a main source of nutrition for years...they keep changing the “formula” and up until this new change he’s “dealt with it”. But this one is so different he can’t stomach it. I’m so disappointed. Now we have to find a completely different line.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loved this! My son who is almost 3 was born premature and currently uses a meal replacement drink 2 to 3 times a day, as well as some food. I tried this before I put it in his cup and it was surprisingly really good! Better than the other meal replacement we currently use. He downed every last drop in his cup. I would definitely consider switching meal replacement drinks as this drink did not have an aftertaste and just overall tasted much better. My son loves anything chocolate flavored. But this was such a hit!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing great Got this for my 6 and 7 yr old to try. 7 year old wanted nothing to do with it after one small sip. 6 year old said it was good at first and then asked why it tasted like dirt. He never finished it. I had to throw it in the trash.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Didn’t go well I gave this to my 3 year old who loves juice thinking it would be a hit. I mean who doesn’t love flavored milk. WRONG. She was very against the taste and wanted me to taste it. So I did and I agree. It does have a good taste at first but then you get the after taste that isn’t the best. On the good side it does come in an easy on the go packaging that makes it easy for any kid to use and Convenient. The packaging is sturdy so you don’t have to worry about leakage as far as I can tell.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My picky kids LOVE it! My kids loved these Boost Kids Essentials! They tried the Strawberry Splash flavor and said it tastes like their favorite strawberry milk! My kids are super picky so knowing that they love something that is giving them their essential nutrients to help them grow is amazing! I tried it and I love the creamy texture! With 10 simple ingredients and no artificial flavors, sweeteners, or colors this is our go to drink to help boost their nutrition and growth. I definitely recommend it!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great healthy drink I got this for my 8 year old daughter a few days ago and she liked it but didn't "love" it. She said that it tasted a little watered down, but she liked it anyway. I like the fact that it is very healthy and has a lot of vitamins. She is under weight and a very picky eater so I think this will make sure she has her essential vitamins. We can't wait to try the other flavors. So far she has only tried the vanilla. I recommend if you have a picky eater in your home to give it a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I got this about a month ago and I'm so happy that I did not only does the product have all of the needed daily vitamins but there is no artificial ingredients or preservatives Plus you can choose a flavor. This product is definitely top quality and even if your child is a little picky then you would have no worries because I'm confident that your child is going to love it and the price value is extremely reasonable so I highly recommend parents given boost kid Essentials a try.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extra nutrition for picky kid! My preschooler will occasionally have a day or so that he doesn't really want to eat. I try not to worry because he eats a decent amount most of the time and is still growing. But it's very hard not to worry as a mom. Boost Kid Essentials makes those days so much better for all of us! He loves the flavor and thinks he's getting a special treat. I know he's getting extra nutrition to support his growing body until he wants to eat full meals again. No more drama at the table!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kid approved! This Boost Kid Essentials drink is a big hit with my 3 year old son! He drank it so fast I was amazed. Before giving it to him, I put it in the refrigerator for just about 30 minutes to give it a little chill, and he drank it straight down! My son is very picky when it comes to eating and drinking new things, but he definitely love this drink. I'm super please that it provides all the nutrients my son needs as he is growing super fast...that's a major plus for me!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from It’s always a toss up with the kids! My son did not like the flavor/taste of this drink. It must be hard to combine all the essentials kids need and make them a great flavor because I’ve had no luck when trying these drinks for him. No matter the ingredients or how good it is, it always boils down to if it’s good enough flavor wise to keep buying for my son. He’s a picky eater and I’m really trying to find a great flavored vitamin packed drink for him to get the good stuff he needs. No luck this far.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for a snack I got the Boost Kid Essentials strawberry flavor for my 10 yr old daughter. She loves box drinks like this, so I was excited for her to try a nutritional and filling one. She had it as a mid morning snack. She liked that it was filling, and the texture was smooth. Her only complaint was the flavor. She said it was ok, but her favorite flavor is usually strawberry, and this just didn't compare. She said next time she would probably get the chocolate flavor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good for an underweight child! My son was born prematurely, and has always been under the growth curve. Our pediatrician recommended trying a supplemental shake once a day to try to boost his weight. We've tried a few, and my little guy really enjoys the taste of Boost Kid Essentials (he loves the chocolate one most). It's also very convenient that it comes in a juice box type container, so that he doesn't spill it like he does with others that come with a twist off cap!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product helped us get past that road block with a decently healthy and pretty tasty snack that’s easy to take when we are on the go. It’s no secret I have always been a fan of Nestle products and Boost Kid Essentials is no different.  I have picky eaters so sometimes getting them to eat their necessary nutrients each day is a task in and of itself.  With Boost Kid Essentials that helps a little in the form of something tasty.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious & Nutritious My son loved the vanilla flavor, and I think the fact that it's packaged like a juice box was a brilliant idea. He was eager to try it, and gulped it right down. The serving size is perfect. This contains LOTS of vitamins, and I feel good knowing he's getting the nutrition a growing boy needs. Only 240 calories per serving, and no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners. We'll definitely try the other flavors too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tasty! Tried the BOOST kid Essentials for my child. And told him it was a vanilla shake. He actually loved it! Drank it all with no problem what so ever. I had to sneak a drink..of course. And was surprised...it actually tasted like a vanilla shake. If it had been colder...I would have drank one myself. Definitely something I can feel good about giving my child. Totally recommend it and we will be buying more!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from She Liked It! I had my daughter drink this, but I tasted it first. It's good! During the summer especially, it's hard for me to get my daughter to sit down and eat breakfast or lunch. She's either running out the door to go to camp, in the pool, riding her scooter with friends...it's non-stop. With BOOST Kid Essentials, I can be sure she's getting something healthy and she doesn't have to stop what she's doing. Win-win!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing These taste exactly like vanilla tootsie rolls. Personally, I love both, but I know some people think both are nasty. I was concerned when I bought them because there were several reviews saying that the taste was awful but I took the chance and was pleasantly surprised. It's a great way to get a little extra protein and vitamins if that's what you're after (and your kid likes vanilla tootsie rolls).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flavor I have a 4 yr old that is very picky when it comes to eating. He doesn’t care for fruits or vegetables at all. I wanted to try this to see if he would like it. He really doesn’t have a problem growing, it just worries me with him being so picky. He said he likes this but it wasn’t his favorite. He loves chocolate but not really milk type drinks. Hoping he will like this enough to drink more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tasting! My daughter is not a great eater, never has been, so I was really excited to try these "shakes" to supplement her meals. She tried the vanilla flavor and really enjoyed it! There were absolutely no complaints! I will definitely be buying the other flavors. Also, I really like that they come in boxes as it seems kids will drink anything out of a box and they're easy to travel with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste!! I received Boost Kids Essentials a few days ago, and my grandson loved it!! He liked the chocolate flavor and I liked the fact that he is getting his vitamins and minerals he needs!! With 25 vitamins and minerals and 11 simple ingredients how can you go wrong!! Will be buying the other flavors to try also!! I would definitely recommend these awesome drinks for all parents!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy and tasty! I just got the BOOST Kids Essentials and was so pleasantly surprised that it had a ton of good vitamins in it and it actually tasted really good as well. Generally it's one or the other, however there were no complaints from the super picky eaters! I tasted it as well and found it to be very tasty. I can now sneak a little good stuff in with a treat and they'll never know!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good You must put in fridge and serve over ice! I tried it before passing off to my 3 year old and it was surprisingly good! Very sweet and creamy with a very strong flavor of strawberry. I honestly thought it was going to be gross cause, lets face it... Most nutritional drinks taste nasty! This drink is very palatable and in my child's opinion, really yummy poured over ice .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Taste My 12 yoa daughter loves Boost Kid Essentials. She does not like to eat breakfast and I have a difficult time finding something that she likes. She has tried different nutrional drinks and this is the only one that she asked me to buy. My only problem is trying to find this product in my local supermarket. She loves the taste and its just the right size.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to get picky eaters to consume protein I received Boost Kid Essentials 1.0 in Vanilla Vortex. My son does not eat a lot of protein so this drink is a great way for him to get his much needed protein as well as vitamins and minerals. It includes 7 grams of protein per serving and 26 vitamins and minerals. This drink promotes healthy bone development with its inclusion of Vitamin D and calcium.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Boost Kid Essentials This product means well, and that's great if you can persuade your children to drink it. My 4 year old did not care for the taste(strawberry). I decided to sample it myself and I don't blame him, it doesn't taste any different than an adult's weight loss shake. It is worth a shot for picky eaters lacking the necessary nutrients in their diet. Good luck.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Supplement My daughter tried this! She took one drink and was like NOPE! Said it was disgusting. She is 11. I asked Her F a little two-year-old that we babysat would like it? She said probably not it was thick and gross. You may have better results than I did so that would be the only way that I would recommend it and you never know each person is different.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great The Boost Kid Essentials drink was actually very tasty! I like the convenience of being in a drink box. It also has an easy open strip so you can pour it. It has easy instructions to use for tube feeding which is super nice and convenient for those in need of that. The taste is good enough that it shouldn’t be difficult to get kids to drink it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Daughter was not impressed I got this for my daughter to try to see if she would like it over her normal vitamins she takes. She at first thought it was okay, but got to the point where she couldn't finish the box due to the taste. I tried it and it reminded me of the milk left over after eating Lucky Charms. Not a bad taste per se, but not something you want a lot of.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste I got his drink for my niece who is a very picky eater. She is 6 but only eats certain things and I was worried she wasn’t getting enough vitamins and minerals from her food. I introduced the boost kid essentials to her and she really likes it a lot. I was so relieved because this drink has so many nutrients I know she is now getting.
