Why is growing-up milk so important for toddlers?

Growing-up milk has been formulated to suit your toddler’s needs perfectly.

Milk and dairy products are very important elements in your child’s diet because, among other things, they ensure that children get enough calcium for strong bone growth and healthy teeth.

Growing-up milk also contains other components for growth apart from calcium, that toddlers at this important phase of growing and learning, need and do not often get enough of. According to the German Nutrition Society Report from 2008, young children between 1 and 3 years old are getting too much protein, not enough polyunsaturated fatty acids (Omega-3), not enough iron, iodine, folic acid or vitamin D. Growing-up milk contains these elements in the necessary quantities.

It is recommended that toddler receive 300-330ml of milk and dairy products daily – ideally served in 2 – 3 portions throughout the day. For children with lactose intolerance, they should stick to an age-appropriate supply with components that support their process of growth.
