Ensure(Boost) vs. Carnation Instant Breakfast
Dec 11, 2011 at 11:24 PM
So my 2.5 year old daughter has been drinking Ensure Plus (350 cal, 14 grams of fat) shakes for awhile now for breakfast and does well with them. The only problem we have is that she is not too hungry for lunch and I could totally understand why. With that being said, I am curious if people on here that have tried both shakes (like ensure and boost) and carnation instant breakfast can say that Carnation is less "filling" . I am wondering if the additive of pure milk would make the carnation less filling so my daughter would be more hungry for her lunch.
Or do they essentially fill you up the same??
Any thoughts or insights would be helpful! (we are thinking of switching to Carnation....)
