Importance of Growing Up Milk

Breastfeeding is the best nutrition for your baby and is highly recommended as breast milk contains the essential nutrients, antibodies and prebiotics your baby needs. Breastfeeding is recommended for the first three years of life with exclusive breastfeeding during the first six months.

For non-breastfeed infant, Growing up milk can be given with a diverse and varied diet. It’s specifically tailored to contribute to provide nutrients your child needs during his intense period of growth:

  • It is fortified with vitamins and minerals (vitamin C, vitamin D, iron, iodine, zinc) to support toddlers’ specific needs.
  • It can contain oligosaccharides.
  • It can contain LCPs, a type of healthy fats essential for brain and visual development.

For non-breastfeed infant, Growing-up milk provides a wide range of benefits to fit into a healthy diet, as opposed to cow’s milk  which is not recommended for your child younger than 3 years as it contains higher levels of sodium and proteins, lower levels of some minerals & vitamins and no fibers. On top, it lacks essential fatty acids that are key for healthy brain development.

Breastmilk is the ideal food for infants: it is best adapted to their specific needs. A healthy and balanced diet of the mother is important for the preparation and continuation of breastfeeding. Mixed breastfeeding can interfere with breastfeeding and reduce milk production. It’s hard to reverse the choice of not breastfeeding. If an infant formula is used for a non-breastfed baby, it is important to carefully observe the instructions for preparation and use and to follow the advice of the medical profession. Incorrect use could pose a risk to the child’s health. Socio-economic implications must be considered in the use of infant formula. After 6 months, in addition to breastmilk, water is the only essential drink. Do not hesitate to consult your health care professional if you need advice on feeding your baby.
