  • Food allergies and food intolerances affect kids of all ages. If your child has an allergy‚ it means that his or her immune system sees certain foods as harmful and tries to eliminate them from his or her system as quickly as possible. Common food allergies include eggs‚ peanuts‚ wheat‚ cow’s milk‚ and seafood. Other types of allergic conditions—including rhinitis‚ eczema‚ and environmental allergies—can also be triggered by diet. Allergic responses can range from a mild runny nose to serious breathing difficulties. Your child might also break out in itchy hives‚ cough‚ wheeze‚ or vomit. If your child has food intolerances‚ he or she might feel nauseous‚ bloated‚ or irritable. He or she may even experience gas‚ heartburn‚ diarrhea‚ or vomiting. Whether your child has an allergy or food intolerance‚ he or she needs to avoid eating anything that contains the type of food that triggers a response.

    When your child is sensitive to certain foods‚ ensuring proper nutrition can be challenging. His or her diet might be low in certain nutrients if they’re mainly found in the foods he can’t eat. This means he’ll have to get what he needs by taking a supplement.

    Metagenics’ Ultracare for Kids® provides a delicious‚ convenient way for kids with food allergies and intolerances to safely get the nutrients they need‚ with a natural vanilla bean taste. This powdered supplement is made from rice protein and doesn’t contain any dairy products‚ eggs‚ corn protein‚ gluten‚ or soy protein. It provides calcium from non-dairy sources. Ultracare for Kids® also has other nutrients that kids need to stay healthy‚ including:

    • Vitamin A—necessary for your child’s vision and immune function.
    • Vitamin D—helps your child grow‚ due to its involvement in building healthy bones.
    • Zinc—needed for proper growth and development; also plays roles in immune system health and wound healing.
    • L-Lysine—an essential amino acid that aids in your child’s bone growth and is required for calcium absorption.

    One container of Ultracare for Kids® has 22.2 ounces (630 grams) of vanilla-flavored powder. You should mix one serving (roughly 30 grams) with eight to 10 ounces of filtered‚ pure‚ or distilled water and give it your child once a day‚ unless otherwise directed by your child’s pediatrician.

    Metagenics creates innovative supplements that help people overcome the symptoms of chronic diseases and maintain their health. Quality and research is paramount‚ and has been since the company was founded in 1983. All active ingredients in Metagenics products have been demonstrated effective by third-party scientists.

    Great addition to my daughters diet

    In our attempt to heal a 4 year olds system from a gluten intolerance our doctor recommend Ultracare for Kids Medical Food. We make popsicles with milk and a tiny bit of cocoa and eating them is practically the favorite part of her day.

    Pros

      great ingredients tastes decent (little bit on the sweet side but a touch of chocolate takes care of that.)

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    We Love Ultracare

    My 2 year old has reflux and will not eat most sources of protein. She cannot have dairy as it greatly exacerbates her reflux. Ultracare has helped so much. We add it to her rice milk and it has been the key to healthy growth for her. We tried several other protein powders before we found Ultracare. Pea protein wrecked her stomach and she cant have any whey proteins. Ultracare really has been so good for her!

    Pros

      Great taste. Great source of protein calcium and other nutrients.

    Cons

    I would recommend this item to a friend.

    The Only Food my Baby Can Eat

    This stuff has been a lifesaver. My 13mo dd is allergic to everything including a plethora of things coming through in my milk. Any solid food we gave her she reacted to. After nursing her full time for a solid year and despairing of ever finding any food she can eat and thrive on at our doctors recommendation we began supplementing with this medical food. At 1yr old she is a little girl only about 17.5 lbs. One week after we took her off all solids but this medical food she had gained a full pound. The eczema on her face has cleared up after several weeks. We call this medical food "cookie soup" because it tastes like sugar cookies and at first my baby wouldnt drink it but would eat it with a spoon like soup. She has since become completely charmed by the discovery that she can manage her own food in a sippy cup. She LOVES her cookie soup. As formulas go its expensive but its worth every penny.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
