Dietary surveys show that in the UK 31% of young children aged 12–35 months do not meet the estimated average requirement for iron1 and in Ireland 23% of 1-year-olds and about 10% of 2- and 3-year-olds have inadequate intake of iron2.

Between 6 and 24 months, young children have a high requirement for iron due to rapid growth and nervous system development. Iron deficiency can lead to reduced cognitive function3.

The use of a fortified milk drink like LITTLE STEPS® Growing Up Milk can be one way to increase the iron intake compared to use of unfortified cows’ milk4-6.

2 daily servings (2 x 200ml) of LITTLE STEPS® Growing Up Milk provides 46% of a young child’s daily recommended intake of vitamin D7.
