How much, how often?
Provide around 3 serves per day of these calcium rich dairy foods or alternatives. This may be as smaller serves throughout the day, or combined in bigger serves (as your child pleases).
Lactose intolerance tip
True lactose intolerance (called primary lactose intolerance) is very uncommon in young toddlers. If your little one is showing signs/symptoms of lactose intolerance, this may be secondary to some other gut upset so consult your healthcare professional.
A2 Beta-casein protein tip
Goat, sheep, camel, buffalo and yak milk all naturally contain the A2 beta-casein type protein rather than the A1 type. In this way, they are like a2 Milk™ Full Cream.
*Cereal based beverages, when used as a milk alternative, should be used under the guidance of a dietitian for children between 1–2 years of age.
Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides the optimal balance of nutrition and protection during growth and development.
Good maternal nutrition is important in preparation for and during breastfeeding. If you are considering bottle feeding, always seek professional advice as introducing bottle feeding, either partially or exclusively, may adversely affect breastfeeding by reducing the amount of your own breast milk supply and may be difficult to reverse should you change your mind. Consider the financial and social implications when deciding on a feeding method for your baby.
Improper or unnecessary use of infant formula may affect the health of your baby, therefore, always prepare and use as per the manufacturer’s instructions.
