The first 1000 days of a baby’s life have a life-long impact on many aspects of future health.

A UK Infant dietary survey shows that 31% of young children 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.4

A Growing Up drink, such as LITTLE STEPS® PLANTYGROW Growing Up Drink, can help to increase the intake of iron and vitamin D in toddlers in conjunction with a varied and balanced diet.

2 x 200ml servings of LITTLE STEPS® PLANTYGROW Growing Up Drink provides approx. 70% of a toddler’s vitamin D requirements5 and 60% of a toddler’s iron requirements5

Suitable for vegetarians

IMPORTANT NOTICE: 

We believe that breastfeeding is the ideal nutritional start for babies and we fully support the World Health Organization’s recommendation of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life followed by the introduction of adequate nutritious complementary foods along with continued breastfeeding up to two years of age. We also recognise that breastfeeding is not always an option for parents. We recommend that healthcare professionals inform parents about the advantages of breastfeeding. If parents choose not to breastfeed, healthcare professionals should inform parents that such a decision can be difficult to reverse and that the introduction of partial bottle-feeding will reduce the supply of breast milk. Parents should consider the social and financial implications of the use of infant formula. As babies grow at different rates, healthcare professionals should advise on the appropriate time for a baby to begin eating complementary foods. Infant formula and complementary foods should always be prepared, used and stored as instructed on the label in order to avoid risks to a baby’s health. LITTLE STEPS® PLANTYGROW Growing Up Drink is suitable for young children from 1-3 years, as part of a healthy balanced diet and it is not a breast milk substitute.
