Can Sweetened Condensed Milk For Children Under 5 Years?
good night doctor,
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
After the child is over 2 years of age, any type of feeding is acceptable, provided your child does not show signs of allergies or digestive tract disorders. Here are the signs to watch out for:
Reddish skin rash, rash, itching feeling Nausea, vomiting Diarrhea Constipation Abdominal pain The child's weight is too small or even excessive when compared to standards for children his age Are there any of the above signs that your child experiences after consuming sweetened condensed milk ? If not, then you can just give it away. Milk is good for supporting bone growth and fulfilling children's nutritional needs during their growing period.
However, what you need to pay attention to is, often sweetened condensed milk is processed with a lot of added sugar. If this sugar is given in excess to children, the risk for obesity, diabetes, and various other metabolic diseases will be greater. Therefore, it will be much better if you do not give too much. Alternatively, you can give your child more water in times of thirst. Or, you can also choose milk that contains less sugar and is intended for children his age.
Consult the right feeding and milk for your child to a pediatrician.
I hope this helps.
