Selection Of Milk For Child Growth Over One Year?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Medically, the term milk growth is unknown. Formula milk is milk supplemented with nutrients and certain ingredients which are substitutes (substitutes) for nutrients and ingredients contained in breast milk, which are indeed given as a substitute for breast milk for babies. Because breast milk is a magical liquid whose contents can vary depending on the needs of the baby. Breast milk that comes out when a newborn baby, 1 month old baby, and 1 year old baby can have different contents. The content in formula milk cannot change on its own as breast milk, therefore formula milk producers make formula milk that is grouped by age group (for example formula milk for children under 6 months, formula milk for children under 1 year, formula milk for children 1- 2 years, and so on). The benefits of formula milk certainly cannot completely replace the benefits of breast milk, because breast milk contains immunoglobulin which can help protect children from disease, while this immunoglobulin cannot be found in formula milk.
For children over 1 year, actually you also don't really need to give formula milk anymore for your child. You can already provide regular cow's milk for children (pasteurized cow's milk of course) because most of the nutrients have been obtained from food. Children certainly will still benefit from breast milk (breast milk is recommended to be given up to 2 years or more), but there is no recommendation to give formula milk until the age of the child is more than 1 year.
The nutritional content in formula milk available on the market is not much different, so you can choose any brand that tastes really liked by children and the price is right for you. Once again, there is no obligation to provide formula milk for children over 1 year because you can provide regular cow's milk for children.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
