Formula Milk Mixed With Sweetened Condensed Milk For Children?
my child is 1 year 2 months I used to give SKM really, but after I gave formula my child absolutely did not want to, then may I not mix formula milk with SKM
Hello, thanks for the question.
Food for babies over the age of 1 year is solid food and milk, both breast milk and formula milk to supplement nutritional needs, where milk or breast milk is given a maximum of 30% and solid food as much as 70% of total calorie needs. While babies under the age of 1 year the recommended milk is breast milk, if it can not be recommended donor breastfeeding which has been guaranteed hygienic and safety, but if still not, other options are formula milk or modified cow's milk. Sweetened condensed milk (SKM) is not recommended for infants and children, this SKM is milk that has a low protein content and has a high added sugar content. The sugar content in this SKM exceeds the amount of calorie needs in toddlers so it is not recommended for consumption by infants and children. High sugar content and low protein are feared to cause growth and development disorders in infants that can cause health problems. Therefore, infants and children for giving milk other than breast milk should be consulted first with a pediatrician.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
