Rated 5 out of 5 by from My son loves these My son loves these drinks. I haven’t been able to find Any nutritional drinks that he will actually drink without any complaints of bad aftertaste or chalkiness taste. But he says that these Boost Drinks don’t have that. I actually have to stop him from drinking more then one a day. Right now he is really liking the vanilla flavor, he has never liked Chocolate flavor nutritional drinks in the past but I think that might change with these ones so I’ll be buying the chocolate flavor ones next and see how that goes!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs more flavor I have a 9 yr old that we have issues with him eating food. He is very particular and have had to resort to protein drinks. Essentials Boost for kids, vanilla flavor was a little watered down. We made it into a shake to see if he would drink it better and added 1/2 a banana. Needless to say the banana took over the vanilla flavoring and he preferred the original drink out of the single serve container. It meets the vitamins recommended by his pediatrician so no concern there about its health value.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shakes My son is on a medication that makes it very difficult to keep weight on. Add in school lunch times that aren't long enough, he was getting underweight. Nutrition shakes are a perfect solution. The vanilla flavor is pretty good, but. Ot his favorite. The other flavors cover up the vitamin taste a little better. I do wish the package was a little easier to drink straight from. We pour these into a glass, but the others in bottles can be consumed right from the bottle.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone in the house loves them! I am very happy with the Boost Kid Essentials. Me and my son both like it a lot. My son is a very picky eater and does not like a lot of healthy foods. This is a great way to provide him with some good nutrition and vitamins while he is enjoying it. The Boost Kid Essentials is very tasty and smooth. It is just the right consistency; not too thick or thin. The serving size is great too! It helps with portion control. Definitely a favorite in my household.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product works great for growth My kid was underweight and was a really picky eater. He is very petite and we wanted him to gain a bit of weight. It has helped my son in so many ways. He drank BOOST® Kid Essentials™ to keep up his weight when his appetite was absent. He gladly drinks it with lunches and as a snack. I highly recommend this product if you have a child with low weight gain or picky eater. We love the product and are happy with the nutrients it provides for our growing boy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kids love it! My boys are THE most picky eaters in the world. I always worry that they aren't getting enough vitamins and nutrients from the food they eat. These help fill in those gaps. I feel good letting them have these because it helps get the good stuff into them ( vitamins and nutrients) and they feel like they are getting a little "treat". These taste great and help give them some of the things they are missing from their food. I'm very happy we found these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good taste I like that it had the necessary vitamins and minerals for my daughter. I tried it as well, and I thought it tasted like a chocolate breakfast drink. I like that it comes in a convenient package. We tried the chocolate craze flavor. It still has the breakfast drink flavor that makes it difficult to get my kid to drink it. Wish it tasted more like actual chocolate milk, but overall a very good on the go meal replacement for a kid.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Ticks all the nutritional boxes The Nestle Boost Kid Essentials is a complete meal in one. You can be sure you are getting all the nutrition you need. My youngest daughter loves drinking these shakes, especially for breakfast, but my oldest daughter didn’t care for the taste... so it’s a personal preference. I thought they were a little thick and rich and could see adding some milk to cut through it a bit- but my youngest drinks them down just as it is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BOOST Kid Essentials My kids love BOOST Kid Essentials! We tried the vanilla vortex flavor. It is rich and creamy and you can taste all the great vitamins. I highly recommend this for picky eaters to make sure they get the vitamins they need. Comes in adorable packaging and is perfect sized. The twist off cap makes it easy to store in refrigerator if they don't finish all of it. Great for lactose and gluten intolerant children too. Kudos!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even the big kids liked them! I originally got these for my 8 yr old. He is just a picky eater and wanted something that gave him all the nutrients that he is not getting. I was nervous at first not sure if he would like them but he loved them. To the point that he threw a fit when the older kids wanted one because there was only 4 in a pack! Needless to say I had to go buy several cases, but this is one thing I do not mind buying several of.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smells and Tastes Horrible I got these for my 10 year old daughter, I figured this would be an easy way for her to get the vitamins she needs and easier to get her to drink it because it was like a flavored milk.We refrigerated these as soon as we got them, 24 hours later I gave one to her, we shook it thoroughly, she opened it and went to take a drink and stopped before she got it to her mouth, she refused to drink it said it smelled like sour milk. I smelled it and she was right. We shook it some more, checked out that date on it, wasn't expired, then poured it in a glass. Still smelled sour, tasted it and spit it out. Disgusting, tasted like bitter medicine, real medicine like and the smell does not help.Can not see any child liking this, its almost like you took vitamins, chopped them up and blended them with old milk! We tried the vanilla, dont know if chocolate would be better, but strongly doubt it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Okay drink This I wasn’t really only my kids favorite and I had to try it myself as well. It’s so sugary and tastes like medicine that I didn’t really enjoy and now I know why my kids didn’t like it. It does have good value as it packs lots of vitamins and nutrition for my kiddos but you have to get over the taste. Maybe in a different flavor it would have been more fine but chocolate did not work for us

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Some like it So I was optimistic about the kids trying it to get them to have something healthy. We tried the vanilla flavor. The girl took a sip and didn't like it all the much. She said it had a bad after taste. The boy tried it and he liked it. He kept drinking it. He took it outside with him so that's a plus. I would recommend to those parents who have children who like to drink different things.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kids drank them up fast! My girls drank these up fast and said it was a good taste. I had the chocolate flavor and out of curiousity took a sip. It was good! Not real thick. They do come off the shelf, so you will need to refrigerate them if you want them cold. Room temp isn't to bad, but I think cold is better. This also is a plus with all the Heath Benefits, such as all the different vitamins.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So good yet healthy! We've been trying the BOOST Kid Essentials with my 3 year old granddaughter. We got the chocolate and she loves them. She calls them chocolate milk yet they are so much healthier and better for her. This is a perfect way to add nutrition and vitamins as a snack and the kids won't even know. So much healthier yet she loves them. They're a definite win win here!

The taste is real and exactly what my kids needed to boost their energy. When it comes to my kids choices of food and beverage, If they are happy I am happy too. We have a new favorite item that will become a staple in our kitchen, it is called BOOST kid essentials.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great if you have a picky eater! My 5 yr old is such a picky eater. I am always worrying about her health and if she's getting all the vitamins, minerals and protein she needs to grow. She is very picky and she loved the chocolate boost! I put them in the fridge and a she just loved it. Now I can feel confident that she's getting everything she needs until she outgrows this picky phase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yum My kids just love these!! Chocolate Craze was their favorite flavor. With had them in the fridge for some hours, they love when it was chilly to.enough drinking them. One of my kids is lactose so it did not upset his stomach. They both were able to drink down & enjoyed them. One thing i like is that it is not overloaded with sugar. Package comes with 4.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great option for picky kids This protein shake is a great option for filling nutritional gaps for picky eaters. It has all of the main vitamins and minerals plus protein which is great for my daughter who has difficulty gaining weight. The vanilla flavor is similar to other nutritional shakes in flavor and blends well into shakes, smoothies, or is great by itself when it is cold.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Benefits and Tastes Great! I had gotten this specifically with my son in mind because he can be a picky eater and was going to get him something that gives him what he’s missing and tastes good at the same time and this does the trick. It has all the things that every parent with a picky eater needs and the chocolate flavor is their favorite, even his siblings love it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really good! My daughter is tiny and has been considered underweight and the Dr. has suggested we supplement to get a few extra vitamins, and calories. She loved this! She said the vanilla was yum, so if she likes it, it is mom approved. The package was perfect for tiny 2 year old hands and was easy enough for her to use. I would highly recommend this!

My kids love this stuff, it's packaging is super cool and it can be stored at room temperature until you're ready to chill and serve it. It tasted just like a vanilla milkshake and is so tasty I need to be careful not to let the kids drink too much of it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for my picky eater! My son has always been a picky eater. It's been a struggle making sure he eats well enough that we don't have to worry about nutrition. These are perfect to fill in the gaps of his diet and help him get the nutrition he needs. He loved the taste and was even asking about having one like it was a treat. Win for mom, win for him.
