Zariq Siddiqui serves as the senior manager of sales operations and strategy at Abbott Laboratories, Inc. Zariq Siddiqui is responsible for sales in Abbott’s Pediatric Nutrition Products Division, which produces PediaSure Grow & Gain, a nutritional supplement shake to help children grow.

The PediaSure shake comes in banana, vanilla, strawberry, chocolate, and berry flavors and includes 25 essential vitamins and minerals and seven grams of protein. The shake may be purchased in a ready-to-drink bottle or as a powdered mix.

While both the PediaSure bottled shake and the powdered mix contain 240 calories, there are marked differences in the products that affect how they can be used. The bottled shake may be taken as a supplemental source of nutrition or used as a child’s sole nutritional source if recommended by a doctor.

Because the powdered mix has higher levels of nutrients, it is intended for use as a supplement only. Children should drink no more than one (ages 1 to 3), two (ages 4 to 8), or three (ages 9 to 13) of the powdered-mix shakes per day.

PediaSure is not intended for infants under the age of 1. Parents should consult with their medical professional before providing the shake to children under 2 years old.
