Toddler formula, recommended for children between the ages of one and three, is a product specially designed to satisfy the particular nutrition needs during this important growth stage. After breastfeeding, which the World Health Organization suggests continuing to 24 months, babies begin to discover new flavors and consistencies.
This little revolution is often accompanied by the refusal of unknown foods, and in some instances can cause imbalances in required nutrition levels. To prevent such a lack from developing, specialized producers offer toddler formulas as a solution.
The formula is studied in depth to meet every aspect of the child’s needs. Cow’s milk, which contains high quantities of protein and saturated fat, is often excessive compared to the diluted amounts found in toddler formula. There are also essential Omega-3 fatty acids, vitamins and minerals (like iron, phosphorous and zinc) fundamental to the growing process, which in some cases do not reach sufficiency in the normal diet.
