My son tasted this and did not like it at all unfortunately. He has tried and likes other kids boxed milk beverages like Horizon, Ensure, and Boost; so I'm not sure why or how this one is different to him but it is.
This was as horrible as the other enfagrow-it tasted bad and my son refused to drink it-he took one sip and said it tasted awful
My son tasted it, and spit it right out. Now, he is a milk drinker. That is his favorite drink. So this obviously tasted nothing like milk. I tried to pour it in a cup so he wouldn't know it was the same thing, and once he tasted it again, he spit it out again.
My daughter and my daughter's friend did not like this product. They spit it out and refused to drink it again. I can't say I blame them though because I smelt it and it was terrible. I think they could do a better job of coming up with something healthy but yet still tasteful!
i tried to give this to my daughter, my nephew and my niece - all of whom love milk - none of them would drink it. they didn't like it at all. i couldn't even get them to try the vanilla flavor - as soon as they saw the package, they refused. better luck next time i guess
My twins couldn't stand this product, regardless of the flavor or temp. I can't have dairy so I couldn't even take a little sip to see how it tasted. I only know that even with Ovaltine mixed in, they would have none of it! Not only that but the straws are horribly designed and kept falling back into the box. They couldn't drink it properly and I had to put it in a sippy cup. Big fail in this household. I gave away the coupons.
My toddler is turning 3 in just a few weeks and has been in that awful picky phase kids at this age often go through. Cheese and fruit are about all she'll eat so I was looking forward to seeing if Enfagrow could bring some extra nutrients to her daily routine. So far we've only tried the Natural Milk flavor and it's not gone over well. Of the three times I've served it to her she's taken probably five sips. The first time I gave it to her at a meal in the box with the straw thinking the novelty would win her over. She took a few sips and then proceeded to paint it all over her tray with the straw because it was 'icky'. The second was a similar situation only she took only one sip and then threw it on the floor. Thinking I might get her interested in a sippy cup proved to be even worse. One sip and she threw her cup and started crying because I gave her 'milky' that was 'too yucky'. The packaging is awesome and would be really handy for moms who are more on the go (I'm a SAHM and it really isn't a big deal to me personally). Unfortunately, if it tastes awful no toddler is going to drink it so that completely defeats the purpose. I think I'll taste the last one myself (how bad is it that I'm dreading it after my toddler thought it was wretched?) and maybe offer it to her over cereal or with some chocolate milk powder just to see if it's simply this particular flavor. Next up... we'll have to give the vanilla flavor a go but I'm not very hopeful.
My 4 year old tried both the vanilla flavor and the plain milk flavor and refused to take more than a taste of either. I tasted them and they just weren't very good. The IDEA is better than the actual product.
The intentions of the drink is great, my son would just not drink the natural milk flavor.
I think the concept of the drinks are excellent and love that they provide so many healthy ingredients a growing older toddler needs. However, I believe the taste needs to be improved upon. My 2 year old daughter really disliked these drinks. She took one sip, said "No, its yucky", and then wanted to throw it in the trash. She is not a picky eater and eats and drinks almost everything she is offered, so I was actually surprised that she did not like these. I tasted it myself and did not think it tasted very good either. I don't want them to go to waste, so I will try to turn them into milkshakes like a previous review said.
My two year old refuses to even try the milk flavor. She tried two of the Vanilla ones, one room temp. and the other really cold, and she threw both away. I waited a few days and offered her the milk flavor. She said "no" and asked for juice. I'm going to guess that she doesn't like the taste. I'm not brave enough to try it myself, and none of my three older children want to try it either. I see that these are good for my daughter, but the taste needs to be looked at again. Most kids are picky to some degree, and at lest with my kids, if they try it and don't like it, they won't try it again.
My child would only take a couple sips and then it just sat there.
My daughter didn't like the taste that much ,she just tried one.she likes chocolate flavor
My four year old daughter said it's, "YUCKY"!!!! Of course she has always drank soy milk so it didn't appeal to her at all. But I passed it on to a friend who's son doesn't eat well at all. I'm hoping he'll enjoy them and they'll improve his diet.
although it may be created to be especially good for toddlers, if they won't drink it - then it's no good. my 4 year old was so excited to try them - took one sip and pushed it aside. too bad - i was looking forward to a healthful and convenient drink to pack in her lunchbox. :(
