Adam the Picky Eater

Adam loves to eat but he is very particular about what he eats. Like his sister, he is quite a carb monster and can be perfectly happy with just rice/ noodles and soup, and he doesn’t really eat any vegetables and only eats certain fruits. Unlike his sister, however, he only likes Chinese food! So when we were in Europe for two weeks, he barely ate anything except for the one or two times we had Asian food and we were quite worried that he wasn’t getting enough nutrients.

While we do our best to provide a balanced diet for the kids, I was more than happy to try out S-26 PE Gold formula for picky eaters. Since picky eaters may miss out on essential nutrients, S-26 PE Gold is there as a back-up to ensure that they get all the nutrients they need for growth and development.


Adam likes the taste of the S-26 PE Gold formula and I enjoy that extra peace of mind I get knowing that with over 25 essential nutrients found in all the major food groups, he’s not missing out on anything that he needs to be strong and healthy. He even looks less scrawny! If only we had some S-26 PE Gold with us during our Europe holiday!

Some additional information about S-26 PE Gold:

  • suitable for children between 1 and 10 years of age
  • fortified with DHA, AA, Choline and Taurine to help ensure mind health development
  • fortified with Lutein that helps protect the developing eye from harmful blue light & oxidative damage
  • contains Oligofructose-soluble dietary fiber and a balanced calcium & phosphorus ratio for calcium absorption
  • contains alpha-lactabulmin (alpha protein) a component of whey protein which is readily easily digested, absorbed and tolerated
  • contains vitamins C, D, E, folic acid, iron, calcium and zinc which picky eaters may not get through diet alone.


Is your kid a picky eater like Adam? Does your child do any of the following: skip meals, eat too little, eat too slowly, display unwillingness to try new foods, eat a limited variety of food, show little interest in food, or eat a limited amount of fruits & vegetables? If so, you may want to try S-26 PE Gold for picky eaters.

    My Daughter is quiet picky & like to have some very selective home cooked foods. She is quiet reluctant to try any thing new & will just sit quietly unanswered if you try to convince her .If you force her then she will move or will have eyes full of tears..Recently she got # just after falling from a height of 1.2 meters. I am really worried & now trying all sort of different things to try new & healthy foods.

    Secondly we are pure vegetarian, so somewhere if you are really very choosy, it becaomes hard to meet the nutrients requirement.

    My youngest is a foodie. But recent months he started to not like eating cooked rice. Dinner hours can drag and be super painful for all of us, Thankfully he still loves his night time milk.

    My son alex hardly ever fnishes his meal in one sitting and often eats only half his rice! Meal times will see him leaving his chair every few min. It’s frustrating

    My daughter doesn’t like western either! If we are having western for the day, She’ll only take about 4 fries and declares she’s done with her meal. :(

    My son is very selective when consuming his veggies and fruits. He does not want to venture beyond apples, pears & rock melons for fruits and spinach, broccoli & carrot for veggies. He is pretty resistant to try new food.

    We always having a headache when it comes to my liitle one meal times… He was taken his meals well till age of 2. After that he is a picky eater, Even though we mixed meats or fish and vegetables into smallest cubes; once he taste it, he just throw them out. He only take plain rice with soup. We are very worry about his nutrition intake. He love biscuits, cakes and junk food. Now he is in childcare, according to teacher that he never waste his food. I really hope I able to win this to make sure he meet his nutrition requirement. Thanks.
