Cow’s milk is a good source of calcium, vitamin D and protein. Cow’s milk is nutritious and can be an important part of a child's diet. Within the first 3 years of life 85% of brain growth has occurred, that's why many moms try to include brain-nourishing DHA into their toddler's diet. Enfagrow A+® is a toddler nutritional drink that has DHA. Most milk does not. Cow's milk is also low in iron, which is essential for physical and mental growth, as well as other nutrients key to healthy development. While your toddler is making the transition from breast milk or formula to eating a variety of foods from the four food groups in Canada’s Food Guide, cow’s milk may not be enough to fill the gaps in his diet.
Designed with toddlers in mind, Enfagrow A+ is an everyday toddler nutritional drink with brain-nourishing DHA (a type of Omega-3 fat). It has 26 nutrients for healthy growth including iron, calcium, vitamins C and D and a fibre blend. And because it can be served with a meal or as a healthy snack, it’s an easy addition to your toddler’s regular diet.
