Sustagen Kid Essentials :
4.25 out of 5 based on 265 reviews.

As mums, it’s important to us to know that our children are receiving the right nutrition to grow and develop normally.

During this time of critical growth, it is essential that children receive not only an adequate supply of all of the micronutrients (vitamins and minerals) but also macronutrients (energy in the form of calories, protein, carbohydrate and fat).

Introducing Sustagen Kid Essentials …a great tasting, nutritionally complete drink for children aged 1-10.

Sustagen Kid Essentials is a great tasting, nutritionally complete drink for children aged 1 – 10.  It is high in protein and contains 27 vitamins and minerals to help support growth and recovery. Sustagen Kid Essentials gives kids the taste they love, the nutrition they need.

How do I know if my child needs a nutritional supplement?

Nutritional supplements may be recommended by your healthcare professional when:

  • children aren’t eating and drinking as much as they would normally
  • help is needed with weight gain or to slow down weight loss
  • growth is suboptimal
  • nutritional intake is reduced due to illness

How do I use Sustagen Kid Essentials?

Add Sustagen Kid Essentials to smoothies & milkshakes, add to pancakes, cupcakes and muffins, sprinkle over cereal or fruit and yoghurt or simply make up a wholesome glass of Sustagen Kid Essentials. To prepare, mix 7 scoops or 55g of powder into 210mL of water or milk.

Where can I purchase Sustagen Kid Essentials?

Sustagen Kid Essentials is only available at pharmacies. The recommended retail price is $28.95 for a 900g tin.

In the Sustagen Kid Essentials Product Review, mums will receive a 900g tin of Sustagen Kid Essentials to use with their children. We asked them to put Sustagen Kid Essentials to the ‘Real Mum, Real Life’ test and post their review and ratings.

    yum.

    had to buy some more today. the kids love it. they only have one glass a day but they love that glass. and they never forget to have a glass. I am very happy with this product. it has cut flavoured milk out of the picture for good I think.

    Good for the kids and they like it.

    My kids have a real love of flavoured milk. and due to the amount of sugar and lack of goodness (apart from the milk itself) they are not allowed to drink it unless its a special occasion or a treat. this product as made my kids very happy. they are now allowed one glass of “flavoured milk” per day. they think all their Christmases have come at once. It good for them and they love it.

    So Good We Buy It By The Box

    Sustagen Kid Essentials gives me complete peace of mind!

    I have been using Sustagen Kid Essentials for the last two years. I now have three children that have it on a daily basis. I go through roughly eight tins a month. My five year old is an extremely fussy eater, and I was often concerned about whether or not he was getting enough nutrients to meet the requirements for his age.

    Kid Essentials gives me peace of mind as it is extremely nourishing and my fussy eater enjoys the taste of it without a problem. I will definitely be starting my fourth little one on it as soon as he reaches twelve months as it is an excellent product and I highly recommend it!

    We saw this in the supermarket and decided to try it with our 3yr old son and he loves it. We give him a glass of milk with this in it once a day to help with his vitamin and mineral intake. We will be buying this regularly.

    What a great way to ensure my kids are healthy!

    Sustagen Kid Essential is an easy way for me to make sure that my kids are getting the the nutrients they need in their diet. I would highly recommend to any parent wanting to make sure their children also are reaching their daily intake of all the minerals and vitamins needed for great health. Its so very easy to prepare and my kids love it,especially cold just out of the fridge as an after school “snack”

    My son loves Sustagen Kid Essentials

    My son loves Sustagen Kid Essentials and thinks it is a treat. I was really struggling with my son eating enough and it took hours eat meal of me saying eat your lunch, or eat your dinner over and over again. I was worried he wasn’t getting all the vitamins and nutrients he needed from food so a girlfriend recommended Sustagen Kid Essentials. My son loves it and I love the fact I don’t have to worry about him not eating as much and he is getting those vitamins and nutrients from Sustagen Kid Essentials.

    fussy drinker but recommend.

    I used to drink this when i was breast feeding so i would recommend this to anyone so since my son is a fussy eater n drinker, i was told to get this. My son wouldnt have a bar of it either my daughter too. I would recommend it anyway as i know it helps. A tin full went to the bin. Wasnt happy. It was the vanilla one that i got. I wonder if chocolate would have won? Havent seen chocolate around though.

    Wish it tasted different

    My daughter went through a period where she would barely eat anything (despite our baby led weaning and getting her to help prepare food, etc). I tried this as I always use Sustagen myself when I am not getting enough nutrients but, unfortunately, she can’t stand the taste. I have tried putting it in things but she can always detect it.

    expensive but my son drank it full of vitamins

    this has nutritional value is and is 900 grams for a tin size. At $30 a tin it is expensive however my son is coeliac and has a lot of allergies and has a lot of trouble eating some foods but this certainly helped him get his nutrinol value every day. He really enjoyed the taste a bit too much I had to limit the him drinking it as it so expensive I can’t afford him drinking more than one a day. In saying this it does last over a month so it’s under a dollar a day so not too bad . I will need to budget too have this but when my son went and got his blood test done again his iron levels where up and his vitamins and bloods levels where good so this I highly recommend. My family all enjoyed this and my go and doctor was pleasantly surprised by the seats also.

    Tastes Good!

    The kids enjoyed the taste of Sustagen Kid Essentials and it is a brand that I trust to adequately contribute to my childrens daily needs. It is very easy to prepare and the kids liked the smell and taste of it. I found it to be very expensive at close to $30 per tin and while it would last a while at the 900g quantity it won’t become part of my grocery budget.

    the children loved it

    I really enjoy adult sustagen so I thought it would be a great idea to try sustagen for children. I found this product exceptionally easy to prepare. It smells good and according to the children, it tastes good too. I would definitely purchase this product again. I gave the children a glass of sustagen with our meals just to give them an extra boost in their day. I recommend sustagen for kids to anyone looking to add extra into their children’s diet.

    Kids think it's yummy, mums think it's easy to prepare!

    I would recommend this product and since starting it in fact do recommend it to friends with fussy kids especially. My daughter is very fussy and a vegetarian so it is important for her to get the extra micronutrients that she may be missing out on. Her health is absolutely perfect. I would buy this again and again the price is value for money. It is also very easy to prepare just adding in the scoops to the recommended dose as per the back of the tin. I add it to soups also, and custards, yogurt and many other of Charlottes meals, and she really seems to enjoy them more when I have added some of this wonderful product. Sustagen is a brand i have known since I was young and i have no hesitation in trusting Sustagen. I also find that because it is a well known brand that it gives me that extra peace of mind, because Brands that are not generally well known and not generally as highly purchased and spoken about. In my video review you can see my normally smiling cheerful princess fully concentrating on her mily deliciouse drink! Its so cute and please do try it at least once.

    My son must be the only kid who doesnt like this!

    It was easy to make, from a trusted brand and reasonably priced. I was really excited to try because my son doesnt eat near enough of the foods he should and im tired of fighting him to eat the good stuff, unfortunatly he really didnt like it at all and after the first try declared it yucky and refused to try again. My youngest liked it which was good becase at least it wont go to waste. Ill probably offer it again to my fussy eater but im unsure if ill have much luck.

    does the job

    i bought this to try to include this into my fussy toddler’s diet. She loves to drink this now although she was not too sure about it at first and it took numerous attempts to get her to try it. I am happy that she is getting the good stuff that she needs so that makes me feel happy

    Even fussy kids like this

    I have a very fussy eater in my house and its hard to get her to get all her nutritionals needs filled, which can get stressful for all! A friend recommended Sustagen kids essentials and I’m now a fan! with 27 vitamins and minerals and high in protein, I’m very happy for my daughter to drink this. The best part is that she loves the taste and its sold at a good price!

    Must for picky eater kids

    My little bit is a very fussy eater right from the start. I used to keep thinking all day what to offer him as he wouldn’t eat anything. My friend suggested me this product and I had to try. My kids love it and me too. It gives me peace of mind that they are getting the nutrition they need. It’s a win.
