The first 1,000 days of a baby’s life have a life-long impact on many aspects of future health.

 

As babies progress into toddlerhood, they continue to require a balanced mix of nutrients to support appropriate growth.

Excessive protein intake in infancy and early childhood is linked with later overweight and obesity; research shows the importance of providing the right amount of protein in the diet to help support appropriate growth.3,4

Research shows the importance of providing the right amount of protein in the diet to help support appropriate growth.3,4

Fortified with nutrients to support healthy growth

The latest infant and young child dietary survey shows that in the UK, 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.8

Between 6 and 24 months, young children have a high requirement for iron due to rapid growth and nervous system development.9

SMA® ORGANIC Growing Up Milk contains iron to help support normal cognitive development, and omega 3 LCP (DHA) to support brain and eye development.1

Fortified with vitamin D and calcium to support the normal growth and development of bones.

Although omega 3 LCP can be made in the body, infants and young children have a high demand for this nutrients and can benefit from an additional source.1
