Rated 1 out of 5 by from Vanilla Vortex was a BAD BAD decision My son HATES the Vanilla Vortex (and now i am afraid to order the Chocolate Craze). We are now stuck with about 15 8oz drinks that I have to put enough chocolate in to equal 1/2 the vanilla so he can kinda drink it w/o crying! BRING BACK THE VERY VANILLA!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste I received this boost kid essential shake in exchange for my honost review and I am so glad that I did! This kids shake is absolutely delicious. The vanilla flavor is very good and is not chalky at all. There is no bad after taste. It has 27 essential vitamins so you are getting the most important vitamins in this drink.There are 10 simple ingredients so you don’t have to worry about what is In the shake or what your kid drinking. There is no artificial flavors or any artificial sweeteners added in this drink. It comes in a ready to drink box with a straw. You can take it on the go or put it easily in a kids lunch box. You do have to refrigerate any unused shake and drink with 24hrs. Overall just a really great boost drink!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not Liking the "New and Improved" Formula I really wish the Nestle hadn't changed the formula. My daughter has used Boost Rich Chocolate for many years to supplement her nutrition and will not drink the new Chocolate Craze. She said it's way too chocolatey and it makes her sick. It's so upsetting and disappointing because she typically gets half her daily calories from Boost. Looking at the other reviews, we're clearly not the only ones with this problem.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son really liked it. I got my son Boost kid essentials because he is an extremely picky eater and I worry sometimes he just isn’t getting enough vitamins from the foods that eats. He tried the vanilla and he seemed to really like it, I took a tiny sip and I thought it was pretty tasty but had a tiny bit of a chalky after taste to it but my son didn’t seem to notice or mind at all. I also really liked the “juice box” look too, easy for kids and no mess. He likes it and I like that he’s getting the nutrients that he needs from something that actually enjoys.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes great! I have a picky 7 year old in my life who does not always want to eat as healthy as he should so I had him try this and he really loved the taste but little did he know that it is good for him! The vanilla tastes like a treat than something with all the great ingredients in it! Plus no artificial ingredients so I can feel good giving this to him. There is 27 vitamins and minerals and with only 10 ingredients I feel happy knowing he is getting what he needs to be healthier while patiently waiting for him to want to eat better!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice strawberry flavor  I  gave this my son to drink after battling the stomach flu for several days.  Since he was not able to keep down much of anything while he was sick, I wanted to give him this once the flu started to subside since it contains so many vitamins and minerals.     He did like the strawberry flavor. He said it tasted like strawberry milk.  His only complaint was that it left his throat feeling dry after drinking it.   I like that it can be stored at room temperature, so I can stock the pantry with it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Juice Box For Lunch Boxes or Travel I was sent this item complimentary to review. My kids noticed it was different than the normal juice box as soon as they went looking for a drink! There was a little issue with the straw breaking instead of puncturing the foil hole, but after solving and explaining it wasn't actually juice my 10 year old son LOVED the drink and my 6 year old asked if we could try a different flavor. I personally love all the vitamins and nutrients that are in this product so we will definitely try the other two flavors!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy Drink I got this Boost Kid Essential a couple of weeks ago. I let it cool first and my kid like it. This is a good healthy drinks for kids because it has lots of vitamins and minerals and no artificial flavors. Also this is not a sweet drinks. It has a balance flavor. It is also a good on the go drinks for kids and it is easy to drink and not messy. Perfect for kids. Overall, I highly recommend this to all the parents for their kids that are picky eater because it has so many vitamins and minerals.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok taste Boost kid essentials 1.5 vanilla vortex is just ok. I like that it has 27 vitamins and minerals, and only 10 ingredients. We chilled ours first and my daughter tried it. She said it was just ok but wouldn't like to drink it again. I tasted it. It was vanilla. There was no chalkiness, no after taste, just a vanilla flavor. You could drink it just fine but not something you would want all the time. I do think it's a great product just not right for us.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's a no... I received this boost drink for my child to sample and try. I honestly thought I was doing a good thing for my child but after reading the ingredients and not to mention all the sugar in the drink it's a big no for me. I did allow my child to taste a small amount of the drink, my child stated the drink had a bad aftertaste and spit it out. I also tried the drink it is very thick and extremely sweet. Unfortunately I can not recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Daughter loved it I got the boost kid essentials in Vanilla flavor about a week ago. I finally convinced my daughter to try it. She thinks everything has to be chocolate. One or two sips and the lil carton she was drinking from was gone. She said it was like a milkshake and she loved it Will definitely purchase again for my daughter and thinking about getting some for my nephew who dont eat much and I worry he is not getting enough vitamins and nutrients

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loved it This is a great meal replacement for picky eaters. My son took one sip and said he loved it. It is thick, more like the consistency of a smoothie. He drank the whole thing. It is heavier and packed with nutrients so I see it as more of a meal on the go or a good alternative for picky eaters who aren’t getting the vitamins they need in their regular diets. It is a small package so if you’re child was very hungry you might need two.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My daughter loved it My daughter absolutely love the taste of it. I love all the vitamins and the minerals in it. And that it’s gluten-free. It doesn’t have that much sugar in it either which is good. Comes in an 8 ounce carton which I think is the perfect size. It doesn’t have any artificial colors or flavors or sweeteners which is very good. I’m very picky with my kids eat and drink. The one thing I really didn’t care for is that it has soy in it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great flavor My kiddo is officially a huge fan of these drinks. She isn't big on eating breakfast so I gave her one of these in the morning and she was surprised by how full she felt afterwards. She's not underweight but she does have a hard time gaining. It really made me happy to see her drink the entire box and feeling full afterwards. She loved the chocolate flavor. It is definitely something we'd use again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nutritional drink for kids I wanted something for my son to drink that's healthy and good for him since he is a growing boy. I decide to get the boost kids essentials milk in his favorite flavor vanilla. He love it and I love it too that I know it's great and healthy for him. I love that he is getting his vitamins and have natural ingredients instead of artificial flavor. Thanks for creating a drink for kids that's healthy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Healthy option I tried the chocolate craze boost kid essentials out with my son to help with his nutrition. He wasn't totally fond of the taste but it wasn't too bad. He is on a lactose free diet and working on weight gain so this a good supplement for that. I am going to have him try out the other flavors and find his favorite so he will continue to drink them while being fully satisfied with the taste as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from When your kid eats nothings this a good first step For those that have picky eaters that go beyond picky eaters (you know who you are!), you have to take drastic measures to keep them healthy. Our pediatrician had told us to continue giving our son whole milk passed his 2nd birthday since he barely eats nutrient rich foods these days. He refuses to eat meat and he only eats a very limited number of vegetables and fruits. A multivitamin was prescribed but wont make up for the daily essentials he needs. I was really curious if my son would consume a protein shake and this Kid Essentials Boost drink was a winner! He isn't a huge fan of vanilla so I will opt to go for chocolate next time, but I did get him to drink half of a Vanilla Boost. I tried it myself and wasn't a fan which is why I gave it 4 stars for the flavor. Again, I think I will try the chocolate next time. Great concept and great idea for picky eaters that need nutrients somehow!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Loaded with great things. So this drink really is loaded with a ton of great things. Helpful for bones, teeth, and entire bodies. The only trouble for us personally is that my son really did not like the taste. I was super bummed because I feel as though this is a great product. It was the chocolate that my son didn't like, so we will try the vanilla and strawberry and see if my son likes the taste of those any better.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great taste My daughters are very picky eaters and tend to eat very little. As parents, my husband and I get so worried about how their development would be if they keep avoiding all the nutritious food. We started giving them the Boost Essentials daily and they love it! They often ask if they could have more because it taste great! We love knowing that they are getting their important nutrients now.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes treat My son Evan hates to eat breakfast and when I packed this for his snack for camp he loved it. He enjoyed milk products and cereal but he just hates to sit down because he has ADHD and this drink was perfect for this little on the go kid. I hope that when he comes home he can learn to sit down and eat his breakfast but until he can he will be taking these on the go kid essential drinks.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Tastes like a treat My kids really enjoy the chocolate taste and how creamy it is. It really tastes like a treat even though it is packed with vitamins and minerals. The size is perfectly and the on the go carton is so easy to use and not to mention pretty darn cute. There was no yucky aftertaste or grittiness. A nice addition to keep some kids getting the nutrients they need to stay healthy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My daughter really liked it! My three year old daughter really liked this drink. It's full of vitamins and minerals, which is great! The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because of all the added sugar. I try to steer clear of as much sugar for them as possible, especially added sugars. This is something I would give them every now and then as a treat, definitely not on a regular basis though

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Like this My little boys both tried this drink, they both really enjoyed it. So I tried a drink of it to see what the fuss was about! These are actually really tasty and not too thick! They taste good and are good for your kids! Anything I can find that is good for my kids, and they will actually drink or eat without spitting out is the best kind of food or drinks in my book!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My 4 year old likes it! My youngest (4) is an picky eater and I find it hard to include the essential nutrients he needs in things that "taste good" to him. I purchased BOOST Kid Essentials 1.5 in hopes he would enjoy it. To my surprise, he slurped it right down with a smile on his face! I will continue to purchase BOOST Kid Essentials and can't wait for my son to try another flavor.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad I let my youngest son try this and he wasn't really a fan. We both tried it to so that I could get a good taste and write a review. It isn't bad but kind of chalky tasting. It has been really hot in the south and I don't know if during shipment it got too hot but it didn't have the best flavor. I put it in the refrigerator for a day before trying it as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic for kids I found this to be great for kids who have trouble eating. It has many vitamins and minerals that are needed for them as well as a good amount of calories, meaning they will maintain their energy. It tastes good, its not an overly sweet chocolate flavor. This is good for any kids, and can give you peace of mind that your kids are staying healthy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great boost of healthy! Honestly the flavor was great. I got vanilla. It was good, just a little thick. I like the fact that it has vitamins and minerals very healthy and have different flavors to choose from. Nice size to carry around if you need that in between meals or as a healthy drink on the go. Overall it is great to have and it is good for you. I am very please!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My son liked it My son liked the BOOST® Kid Essentials™ 1.5, Vanilla Vortex flavor, although he said it tasted like cookies and cream??? I like that it has no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. I also like that it has 27 vitamins and minerals, so it's healthy and my child likes it so even more of a bonus. This will be added to the shopping list!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Picky Daughter loves this drink! My daughter loved the Boost Kid Essentials 1.5 drink. She had the vanilla flavor and she gulped it down which was surprising since she’s super picky! I love the size of the drink and the fact that it contains 24 essential vitamins and minerals also vitamin D and calcium. That’s very important for her growth. Overall I’d recommend this drink.
