                I bought Metagenics Ultracare For Kids because my two year old has a lot of food allergies.  I mix it in the blender with filtered water and other things he isn't allergic to, like frozen organic mangos.  It makes great tasting shakes and smoothies.  I feel good knowing he is getting a lot of important vitamins and minerals, as well as rice based protein.  Lately I mix it with coconut nondairy ice cream, and make vanilla shakes.  He loves it!

                Review: "When my son was 3 months old, he developed a severe case of cradle cap which eventually spread to the rest of his body and was diagnosed as severe eczema. After months of tests (naturopath, homeopath, allergy specialist, dermatologist, pediatrician, osteopath, etc) we finally discovered his MANY, MANY life threatening allergies. Ultracare for kids is one of the ONLY things my son could eat aside from my breastmilk. Upon meeting with a dietician, it should be noted that this is not a baby formula (it would require additional carbs such as brown rice syrup and more fat such as coconut oil). The protein-fat-carb ratio does not meet the "complete" dietary needs of a baby; however, it is a great SUPPLEMENT... We often mix a scoop with applesauce or mashed banana. My son LOVES it as it is quite sweet (due to fructooligosaccharides - the prebiotic) and it is a huge relief to know he is getting hypoallergenic forms of calcium (as he is allergic to dairy, nuts, legumes), iron (he was also anemic), prebiotics and amino acids. The only thing I wish they added is Omega-3 (preferably DHA) or some form of essential fatty acid. Pros: great product, sweet, dissolves easily (albeit thick), great hypoallergenic nutrients, kid-approved by my picky and highly allergic son. Cons: missing adequate carbs & essential fatty acids (although these can easily be added by parents via agave nectar, brown rice syrup, etc...)"
