The Right Amount Of Milk For Children 15 Months?
My doctor wants to ask … my child is 15 months old, bb 8.5 kg … how many ml of milk should I consume every day … without breast milk … and in the morning after waking up drinking milk or water is good for children me .. thank you
Children aged 15 months, usually have received solid food that can meet nutritional needs, so milk acts as a nutritional support. Children aged 15 months usually weigh 9-10 kg. However, determining whether a child is malnourished requires height data which will then be plotted into a nutritional status curve.
The food and drink that the mother provides must be able to meet the needs of calories, macronutrients (carbohydrates, fat, protein) and micronutrients so that the child can grow optimally. A glass of formula milk contains an average of 100-120 calories (depending on the type of formula). At the age of your child, if your calorie intake from other foods is fulfilled, drinking 2 x 250 cc (1 glass) of milk per day is sufficient. Calculating a child's specific calorie needs is using the formula for ideal body weight multiplied by the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) based on age-height. If you want to roughly calculate, just multiply 100-120 kcal / day by the child's weight (120 x 8.5 kg = 1000 kcal / day). If the calories from the food obtained are less than this, it is unlikely that the child will gain weight. In the morning, you can start with water first, then give milk along with other foods for your child's breakfast.
If you want to consult further about child nutrition, you can have your child checked by a pediatrician. You can also discuss types of food and drink for your child with a nutritionist. Thus the explanation from me, may be useful.
