Metagenics Ultracare for Kids Medical Food

Our son has allergies to milk and eggs, so Metagenics Ultracare for Kids Medical Food has been a big help to ensure that he's getting the nutrients he needs.  We blend the product with organic rice milk, which he drinks at least twice a day.  "Ultracare for Kids" is rice based, which has worked well for him.  We tried a corn syrup solids based medical food and he seemed to have more digestion issues with corn syrup solids based medical food.


  1. Hi,
    My son has allergies too and our doctor recommended UltraCare for Kids. But he's only 7 months old so I don't know if that's too young. How old was your son when you started him on UltaCare?

  2. Hi vids,
    Our son started UltraCare after he was weaned, around 17 months of age. He is now 3 and no longer takes UltraCare, but mainly drinks Organic Coconut Milk. I'd suggest following your doctor recommendations or getting a second opinion if you're questioning the recommendations. For what it's worth, I'm just a dad with no medical training :)
