Does My Toddler Really Need Step 3 and Step 4 Formula Milk?

The nutrients found in toddler formula milk can usually be found in everyday food. After the age of one year old, cow's milk and a healthy diet should be enough to provide for your toddler's dietary needs. 

For DHA, taurine and choline which are prominently promoted on milk tins, paediatric dietitian Meave Graham from Child Nutrition Singapore said: “These nutrients are found in breast milk and in normal balanced diets. Children do not need special supplements of these nutrients.”

If a toddler is having problems adjusting to a normal meal because they are a picky eater, milk formula for toddlers may make the situation worse. Formula milk has a higher sugar content and can be very filling, reducing interest in trying other foods. This may make the child overly dependent on milk, making it even harder to adjust to eating normal meals.

If your child is having any dietary issues, always consult your pediatrician before switching to any milk formulas.
