The Importance Of A Toddler Formula Milk...

Advertorial Feature

Getting the correct nutrients and vitamins into your toddler can be a difficult task to say the least, even more so if like me you have a bit of a fussy eater. It is a worry and something that I do think about often, and so that is where a toddler milk comes in. I hadn't really looked too much into toddler milks before, but since I have I can see how much  of a benefit they really can be. This post includes a paid for advertisement from SMA® Nutrition. 



SMA® PRO Toddler Milk contains NUTRI-STEPS®, a unique blend of ingredients - vitamin D, calcium, iron, iodine and omega 3 & 6 - to help support your toddlers' foundation for life. Just 2 x 200ml servings of SMA® PRO Toddler Milk provides toddlers with 108% of the RI* for vitamin D. This is something we definitely lack during the winter months as vitamin D can be obtained from sunlight, and also through eating plenty of salmon, eggs or foods with added vitamin D. This can also be difficult if you have a toddler who isn't keen on the texture of eggs etc. SMA® PRO Toddler Milk is suitable from 1 - 3 years.




We have loved the 200ml ready to go cartons, these also come with a straw so are brilliant for on the go. SMA® PRO Toddler Milk also comes in a 800g and 400g powder form, and also a ready to use 1 litre bottle of liquid form for you to keep in the fridge at home (must be used within 48 hours once opened)




Studies have looked at the total dietary intakes of nutrients, vitamins and minerals of young children. These showed toddlers' aged 1.5 - 3 years are only receiving 1/5 of their recommended intakes of vitamin D from their diet, whereas toddlers drinking the fortified milks had increased intakes of the nutrients zinc, iron, vitamin A and D. With Arch being a fussy eater when it comes to eggs and vegetables I am always on the lookout for other ways to get the correct nutrients into him and this is perfect, he very much still loves his milk and I love that I can be reassured he is getting some added vitamins and minerals into his diet.  

SMA® Nutrition has just launched a Facebook page, called 'SMA® Baby Club UK & Ireland'. There are regular posts to help parents - both Mum and Dads - navigate their first 1,000 days of parenthood, from conception until their baby turns 2. 

* Reference intake (RI) is the amount of vitamins and minerals required each day by young children to help meet their daily nutritional requirements. 

Important Notice: SMA® PRO Toddler Milk is suitable for young children aged 1 - 3 years, as part of a healthy balanced diet and it is not a breast milk substitute. Breastfeeding should continue for as long as possible.

  2. Those cartons look good, fortunately for us our daughter is on prescription milk still at 14 months so no need to worry about follow on milk :)

  3. I truly didn't realise Follow on milk still had so many nutrients in it. That's definitely my mind made up now for getting some for both boys when Patrick turns one tomorrow instead of switching to cows milk 😊

  4. We are currently still on follow on formula, my girl just won't take fresh milk but it doesn't bother me since it's got all the added vitamins! http://www.onesliceoflemon.com

  6. We didn't use follow on milk with my two children because it actually never occurred to me! But I think if your toddler loves it and he is getting nutrients from fresh foods too then it's a win win. He looks pretty chuffed!

  7. I never bothered with follow on with my first because I didn't really know anything about it. We hope to move straight onto cows milk again ox

  8. It's so hard when your little ones are fussy eaters isn't it? My older son is a fussy eater so I'm always trying to snuggle healthy stuff into his food! X

  10. I don't know much about formula as I breastfeed but interesting to know how many nutrients are in follow on, great that they have straws so kids can drink it themselves.

  11. Zach has just finished breastfeeding and has a bottle of formula at bedtime every night. We haven't decided yet whether to switch to a follow on milk like this so thanks for the information

  12. We didn't use follow on milk just normal milk from age 1, but if you find it beneficial then why not.
