Research shows the importance of providing the right amount of protein in the diet to help support appropriate growth.22

Evidence shows that young children who consumed growing up milk (compared with those whose main milk was cows’ milk) had a lower, more appropriate, intake of protein.23

Fortified with nutrients to support healthy growth

The latest infant and young children dietary surveys18,19 show that in the UK 31% of toddlers aged 12–35 months do not meet the estimated average requirement for iron, while 91% of this age group do not meet the estimated average requirement for dietary vitamin D.18,19

SMA® ADVANCED Growing Up Milk is fortified with nutrients to support healthy growth. Use of a growing up formula like SMA® ADVANCED Growing Up Milk can be one way to increase vitamin D, iron and omegas and decrease the protein intake compared to unfortified cows’ milk.23–25
