    kids safe to have protien shake

    I recently bought some whey protien from myprotien it's the first time I have really used protien shakes and I'm finding them ok. my kids have seen it and been asking if they can have some my 12 yr old son has got in the habit of having one every morning before school. not the ideal breakfast I'm sure but probably better than the sugar coated cereal he was having or at least I thought??. I went on there website last night and noticed they only recommend protien shake for people above the age of 18 due to potential damage to liver or kidneys?? however they do offer a little beasts line of shakes. so my question is do you think normal whey is OK for kids?? are they just trying to sell there kids range or are these claims true and kids with whey shakes are I massive no no?? any help greatly appreciated many thanks.

    honestly, unless you can dig up certificate of analysis for that specific protein batch how clean/precise its composition is and how little/many toxins and shit it contains I would not give it to your child. its not the worst thing, but why try poison your kid with something potentially possible like heavy metals and underdosed ingredients. besides alot of companies cut protein powders with other agents like creatine and their salts, plus they do add alot of sugars, be it artificial or not, beware.

    I'm sure he will be fine.

    But just a fyi, like insane said. Protien shakes or mostly cr*P fillers. Its really no better then the sugar breakfast cereal. Your better off using the shakes in a pinch and real food the rest of the time.

    I would use only reputable brands so you can be assure of no extra additives not shown on the label.
    Try unflavored, whey isolate. Mixes in just about anything and no flavor.

    I've been giving my youngest (special needs child) weight gainer protien - I'd rather not but he doesn't eat, every meal is a fight unless it's cookies or cake which he rarely gets. He's under weight, small for his age and I can see his rib cage through his chest, if I didn't' fight with him non stop to eat I swear he'd starve himself to death. I've talked to his doctor about ideas on how to try to get him to eat and they don't have any ideas, the one thing I've found he won't fight me on is a weight gainer shake with bananas and peanut butter added in.

    So I still fight with him, every meal regardless of what it is get strung out into a 2 hour fight but at least I'm getting some fats and proteins in him, I figure it's the lesser of the two evils. I'm also giving him a small amount of liquid multi-vitamin as well. My fear is if he doesn't get nutrition it will affect his development.

    He won't even eat the normal junk that kids go after like pizza.

    If anyone knows of any REAL appetite stimulators that are safe for kids I'm all ears.

    It's fine they often give kids in the hospital sustagen which has actually heaps of sugar in it. The protein powder is actually better. The DR wife and I have a small fussy second child and we often give her protein stuff bars etc after she has been sick to get the weight back on her, fill her tummy up to make her more hungry later. Just watch the ones with the stimulants in them.

    Try the high calouries foods nuts etc and add choc milk to the shakes they are opposite to us their tummies are not use to being full and you have to fill him up so he gets hungry and his stomach will increase in size. Then he will eat more and etc

    It's hard I have been an educator SWD children for 20 years and it is very hard for parents. Keep going with what your doing;

    See if it is a texture issue some kids don't like feel of certain food, also observe and see if it is a temperature issue and sometimes it may even be a sensitivity to foods being combined like rice mixed with other stuff. You can buy those plates that have separate components and then just slowly introduce one new food for him to try. Make dinner a socialisation process which is focused on talking to each other.

    If you are really stuck there are Psychologists that help kids with hypersensitivities and eating strategies

    Texture is def one of the issues, I think that's why the protien shake goes down without a lot of fuss.

    OK keep the shakes going and the slowly introduce simple foods like plain white rice; foods that look and feel plan for us on the palette.
    Especially if he is on the spectrum (ASD or ID) Some kids have a heightened sensitivity to touch light temperature and taste; its not just behaviorall it's neurological that have greater activations where we don't it's, the sensitivity is real to them.
    Introduce slowly with great positive reinforcement, you can also get carb shakes and vitamins that look like lollies I don't like them but when helping parents all options for well being of the student/child .

    Background information : Google food texture sensitivity in kids.

    If you are really concerned find a PSY that specializes in
    special needs (ASD ID) etc. In Australia we have ones that specializes in these kids.

    OP,

    MyProtein is, literally, one of the highest rated supplement companies in the world and their protein powder is, according to external analysis, super clean. You have nothing to fear from giving that to your child IMHO. In the end, as much as we like to rave about "real" food on this site, protein powder is simply food. My 7-year old has 1 cup of milk, one scoop of myprotein whey, and 30g of chocolate powder mixed in there every morning.

    We work with a specialist, we used to have a counselor but insurance stopped covering it due to being "not medically necessary" - they prefer pharmaceuticals. Welcome to America.

    I've got my eye on this one big time, soon as it goes legal I won't hesitate, it's way better than the pharm prescriptions we have but it's not legal here.
