Choosing the Right Milk

There are a few suggestions to ease your decision-making process:

 

Talk to your pediatrician to determine what your child needs for optimum growth. They will ask questions about your child’s eating habits, activities, medical history, and measure various growth indicators. You’ll get a more informed recommendation of daily nutritional requirements you need to look out for.

Pediatricians may have samples to take home and let your toddler try so you can determine whether the taste and consistency will go down well. Your pediatrician should check if your child is allergic to certain ingredients. Children who are lactose intolerant can’t digest milk formula with lactose. PediaSure® is a nutritious alternative for lactose intolerant children to achieve optimal growth.

 

If your child is a picky-eater, he or she may not have a well-rounded diet with adequate daily nutritional intake. What makes one milk brand different from the next is the specific amount of proteins, carbohydrates, and other nutrients in combination with each other6.

Make sure you review the ingredients on the back of the product package in detail. PediaSure® meets or exceeds 100% of the U.S. Dietary Reference Intakes (DRIs) for protein, 25 vitamins, and minerals to support optimal growth7.

 

Albeit the vast choices available in the market, it is important to choose the correct age-bracket for your child’s milk consumption.

Every child has different nutritional requirement as he or she grows up. Make sure you read the labels on the milk formula packaging before making your purchases. Your child needs the right nutrients at the right amounts to support his or her growing years. PediaSure® provides complete and balanced nutrition for children age 1 to 10 years old to sustain physical growth optimally.

 

You want your toddler to grow up drinking the same formula to achieve consistent results, so make sure your toddler loves the taste and has no trouble drinking it.

Did you know, taste is the number one factor that affects your child’s choice of milk formula? As most milk formula brands come in multiple flavours, it’s important to identify you child’s taste preference by requesting for samples or bringing your child to in-store roadshows to try out product samples.

PediaSure® is available in three tasty flavours: Chocolate, Vanilla, and Honey. Trying out milk flavours is helpful to ensure your child gets the right nutrients based on his or her taste preference.

 

You finally decided on a brand. Your child loves the taste of the brand you chose, ultimately you see apparent improvement of your child’s physical growth.

Every decision you make impacts your child’s future. Start with choosing the right milk formula. PediaSure®, a scientifically-formulated milk to support your child’s growth and development. With the right nutrition, your child will achieve optimal physical growth in the future.
