This strawberry flavoured milkshake mix can be enjoyed as part of a healthy balanced diet for children. Nesquick comes in a bright yellow recyclable tub (500g) although there is a smaller size (300g) available and can be bought in most supermarkets and other various smaller retailers where it retails for around £2.74. You can choose from Strawberry, Chocolate and Banana flavours although it is strawberry being reviewed here.

Featured on the tub is Quicky, a happy looking bunny getting ready to enjoy his own Nesquik milkshake. Quicky also gives ideas on how to enjoy this product. On the tub we have at the moment, he recommends after making up your milkshake, pouring it into lolly moulds and freezing them to enjoy that way.

The powder is pink and rather like sherbet in consistency and does not smell anything like strawberries and is slightly artificial smelling despite many references on the package relating to how healthy and non-artificial it is. However, Nestle is a fairly trusted brand and the ingredients are few and mostly made up (after sugar and Maltodexrin) of essential vitamins. The other pluses are that it contains no artificial colours, sweetners or preservatives. Personally I am not keen on the taste of it but my kids love it and they are who it is aimed at.

I find that my children actually enjoy having a small quantity of this as a nighttime drink and I literally put a level teaspoon into about 125mls of warm milk and this is how they have it.

For use as a milkshake drink they advise 2-4 teaspoons being added to a glass of milk but I think this is quite a lot as it is basically mainly sugar even though it does have the benefit of added vitamins, expressly vitamin D which as the packaging points out allows for better absorption of calcium making it a perfect partner for the milk and helping to develop healthy bones and teeth which is particularly important for growing children especially as many don't have milk as their main drink of choice.

Whether your kids like it as a milkshake, a warm drink, a refreshing ice-lolly or as a dessert (by adding icre-cream and fruit), this is a great way to get your kids' drinking more milk if they don't usually do so although I would recommend putting in much less than recommended on the product.

My 4 year old wont touch Nesquik milkshakes, for some reason she prefers Tesco own brand, which suits me fine
