Toddler Milk 1 Year +?
Morning doctor, want to ask what is the best milk for toddlers for child development?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In fact, there is no absolute recommendation for children and toddlers to consume extra milk. Consuming milk can be done as an effort to complement children's nutritional needs, but not as a main source of nutrition. Ideally, the main source of nutrition is fulfilled through healthy and nutritious foods that are consumed by children every day.
Good milk has the following compositions in it:
Proteins, such as casein and whey
Vitamins and minerals, such as vitamin B12, calcium, riboflavin, phosphorus, vitamin A, vitamin D, and so on
Although it plays a very good role in supporting children's growth and development, you need to know that each child's milk needs can be different, depending on various factors, including body posture, activities undertaken, history of allergies, history of illness, and so on. Moreover, we here, because it is related to medical ethics, are not authorized to recommend a particular brand of milk.
For that, especially for toddlers and children, choosing the right type of milk should be consulted directly by checking the child first to a pediatrician. In this examination, the doctor will generally dig in depth information regarding your child's medical history. Furthermore, the doctor will also do a physical examination to identify the possibility of digestive disorders or other organ systems that need to be dealt with by giving certain types of milk. That way, the risk of health problems, such as allergies or intolerance due to improper consumption of milk can be prevented.
Hope this helps ..
