Safe Milk Feeding For Toddlers?
Morning, I want to ask whether liquid milk that can be drunk directly that is circulating for children like bebelac and morinaga child go is good at drinking often for toddlers? R n Does liquid milk like that contain preservatives?
Hello Nella, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, everyone at all ages, especially infants, toddlers, children and adolescents who are growing up, really need to drink milk because milk is the best source of calcium. Toddlers need approximately 700-1000 mg of calcium per day (depending on what age), and calcium needs can be met by consuming 2-3 servings of milk or dairy products (such as cheese / yogurt) every day.
Packaged liquid milk is usually processed by pasteurization, heated to high temperature (UHT-ultra high temperature processing), or sterilized. Examples of the products you mentioned also go through a similar process (Bebelac with UHT, while Morinaga with sterilization). By doing this milk processing, milk can last longer without using preservatives, because bacteria and other microorganisms that can damage the milk have been killed. Therefore your child may not drink packaged liquid milk that has been processed in these ways (any brand of milk). You need to pay attention is not to give fresh cow milk that has not been processed at all (direct milk dairy). Also make sure you pay attention to the packaging of dairy products that you want to give. It is better to choose milk with good packaging, not dented and not torn.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
