Whole food vs multivitamin for the picky eaters | Oscokid Review

Hands up if you have picky eaters at home! Meal times, if we are lucky, the boys will eat what's served. Sometimes, their favorite food may suddenly become a 'poison' in their eyes! Introduction of each new food can be a really daunting experience. With us parents end up to lose our mind at the dining table. How to get enough nutrients for the growing kids then? Multivitamins will only provide certain minerals and vitamins. It's still better to give whole food. Read this article from WebMD when should your kids get vitamin supplements.

Luckily they love Oscokid! Oscokid is 100% plant based milk using Organic millets and Organic Soy milk as the base. So it's suitable for children with special dietary needs such as those with celiac disease, cow's milk allergy and lactose intolerance. These children cannot take normal cow's milk based milk as their body cannot accept it causing diarrhoea and malabsorption. It is also great for those who are vegetarian by choice.

Oscokid is a high protein beverage that is specially formulated for growing kids and youth with no preservative and additive. The proteins are non GMO sourced from organic soybean and organic millet which are the building blocks in human body. Isoflavones which are abundant in soybean, promote healthier and stronger bone growth.

Millet, on the other hand, is rich in iron which is important in red blood cells formation. Do you know that iron deficiency anaemia in children is a correctable cause of delayed cognitive development! Coarse rice provides various types of vitamins, (especially A&B),  minerals and water soluble fibers for health and better bowel regularity.

Besides that, Oscokid has the following natural additives:

Phosphatidyserine (PS) is an important nutrient to improve general mental performance, including the ability to focus, better impulse control,  short-term auditory memory and learning without becoming easily fatigued. In other words, this may help children with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).

Lutein is a strong antioxidant that is naturally present in the eyes to protect the eyes against UV light related damage such as premature cataracts and macular degeneration later on in life.

DHA and ALA, sourced from seaweed and perilla seeds, helps in brain development.

Prebiotics, in the form of fructo-oligosaccharides (FOS), softens stools to ease bowel movement and relieves constipation. It also promotes calcium and magnesium absorption from our daily diet.

Even though Oscokid has the umami taste, it doesn't contain sugar/gluten/sucrose/lactose.

What does Dr Yingzangel think?

Oscokid Travel Pack really tides us through difficult meal time scenario. Instead of giving in to sweet snacks, we bring out sachet of Oscokid to save the day. The important thing is both boys really love the taste. Even I love it! We just need a glass of water and a spoon to prepare an instant and nutritious meal for the boys! The sachets are small and easy to bring along while travelling. So if you have picky children like mine, try Oscokid Travel Pack. It also comes in 800g tins.
