MYTHS OR FACTS?
Exposing myths on growing right

Identify the misconceptions which could be holding your children back from reaching their full grown potential.

Graphic titled 'Myths or Facts'

Here are some of the most common myths
that could impact a child's growth:

MYTH #1
It's normal for kids to be picky eaters.

FACT
Picky eating isn't okay.
Eating right today can support
long-term growth and development.

MYTH #2
Short parents will have short kids.

FACT
Height isn't just about genetics.
Nutrition, in the first 5 years,
matters a lot to a child's overall growth.

MYTH #3
Plain porridge and soup are best
for sick children.

FACT
These foods just aren't nutritious enough.
Kids need extra nutrition
while recovering from illnesses.

MYTH #4
Stunted kids are just shorter
but can be just as healthy.

FACT
According to a clinical study*,
stunted kids are likely to be deprived of
growth nutrients for energy and calories,
because this is first diverted to fight infections.

MYTH #5
Kids can get appendicitis
if they play after eating.

FACT
This is a common misconception.
A 30-min gap is recommended
before play to aid digestion.

MYTH #6
Underweight kids can eat what they like,
as long as they eat.

FACT
Junk food can induce weight gain but,
they are not healthy choices.
Instead, choose a complete and balanced
supplement to meet your child's
nutritional needs.

Four Types of Children Who are at Risk for Growth

SHORT FOR AGE

Children who are not receiving proper nutrition may grow stunted, or small for their age. In fact, in the Philippines, one in three children between the ages of 3-5 years old are stunted*

PICKY EATER

According to a number of studies, picky eating has been linked to a higher risk of being underweight and having stunted growth. **

NOT GAINING WEIGHT

Your child may not be consuming an adequate amount of calories.
Drinking PediaSure Plus® can help fill these gaps and help your child catch up on their weight and height gain (with three balanced meals and exercise).

FREQUENTLY SICK

When a child is sick, nutrients meant for growth are diverted toward the immune system. In order to build a robust immune system, your child's diet needs to be nutrient-rich.****

PediaSure Plus® is a specialized Child Nutrition Supplement, scientifically formulated with 37 growth nutrients, including emerging growth nutrients, to help preschoolers reach their full growth potential.
