I am worried because I read on Google that child go morinaga UHT milk is consumed by children from the age of 3-12 years … plans from now on want to stop my child from drinking child go milk. now my child is more than a year old
Hello Mrs. Oniyq AngeL'foreverzz thank you for consulting us on HealthReplies.com.
As you probably already know, UHT milk is milk that is heated with high heating technology at a certain temperature and in a certain time aimed at killing all microorganisms that are in milk. With this high temperature heating system, UHT milk can be stored for a long time at room temperature but will not reduce the nutritional content in milk.
It's just that there is an age limit to be able to consume UHT milk, at least 1 year of age and above this is caused because digestion in infants is still incomplete and takes time to develop, so when receiving UHT milk it is feared to cause certain effects because UHT milk is processed from cow's milk which is very different from breast milk where babies under 1 year of age should only be given breast milk. Some experts state that in UHT milk derived from cow's milk contains high levels of protein and minerals, so that if the baby's digestive system is still in developmental stages, it is feared it will overload the baby's kidneys and have an effect in the future. In addition, cow's milk is very likely to cause irritation to the lining of the digestive system if given at an early time, as a result there will be a great chance of anemia in infants due to the irritated intestinal lining.
Because it has already happened, then you should still be careful in providing any intake for your child, including milk picking. If during this time the child does not show the condition of a serious health disorder, then you do not need to worry, but if you want to know the condition of the organs in your child, then you can consult directly with your pediatrician to be examined on your child's body. Thus we can convey, hopefully our information can be useful for you. thanks.
