Question: Is it bad to keep changing the brand of a two-year-old child’s milk?
Answer: It’s ok to change your brand of milk, but we don’t really know your reasons for changing. Is it the taste, the cost, the convenience, or the nutritional value of the milk? Nowadays, choosing milk for our children has become a complicated thing because of the constant bombardment of ads claiming that one milk is superior to other brands.
When babies reach two, mother’s milk is no longer the best for them because by this time the child should be eating regular foods. This moment is also the time that milk manufacturers seize. We checked out the ads: These is growing-up milk with bifidus, milk for children with normal gastrointestinal tract (GIT), milk for those with impaired GIT, milk with complete nutrition, follow-on milk, and so on.
It can be overwhelming for mothers when it used to be simple — take two to three glasses of milk every day and eat a balanced diet, and that’s it. But if you need help with special milk for a child who has a special need, seek the advice of your pediatrician. One milk ad reminds us: The use of milk supplements must be upon the advice of your health professional. The improper preparation of milk supplements may be dangerous to your child’s health.
Here are different types of milk released by the Food and Nutrition Research Institute of the Department of Science and Technology.
