Discussions that mention zantac

Children's Health board


Have you tried supplementing her with Pediasure? My son was failure to thrive when he was younger and is still a very picky eater. We found out that the #1 reason for young children to be picky eaters is silent reflux. The only way to know if that is going on is to either put the child on a medication like Zantac and see if that helps or to have a swallow study done. When is reflux is under control, he eats better.

Some children don't do well with Pediasure but will go for things like Carnation Instant Breakfast. If you have exhausted all of these then I would get a referral to see a dietician about the problem. You might also want a referral for an Occuapational Therapist who can do feeding therapy with her. Good luck
