Does My Toddler Need Formula?

Does My Toddler Need Formula?

Pediatricians will recommend switching to whole milk at age 1.  However, we would most definitely recommend a toddler formula if your child is not eating a completely healthy diet.  The typical diet of children today consists of carbohydrates and very little vegetables or healthy whole foods.  A toddler formula will aid in competing your child's diet so she can be sure to receive the nutrients her body needs.  

We do not recommend however, using a sugary drink such as pediasure.  These types of drinks are mainly used for gaining weight & are full of added sugars, preservatives and very little nutrition for your child.  

The best options will be

Hipp Stage 3

Holle Stage 4

Nanny Care Goat Milk Stage 3

These growing up milks are suitable for kids ages 1-3 years of age.  They are meant to compliment a solid food diet and typical kids will drink 6-12 oz, 1-2 times per day.  It is best to not allow your child to fill up on formula milks and always encourage healthy eating habits.  

Always feed growing up milks in a sippy or big kid cup as sucking on a bottle can lead to teeth decay & growth restrictions.
