Breastmilk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.​

Milk and milk products - essential for toddlers

Milk and dairy products are indispensable in the baby diet - they contain many important nutrients for the healthy development of your toddler.

Balanced toddler diet? The Spice of Life!

One should not expect a child to consume all the nutrients in required amounts daily. However, it is good to know which nutrients food contains, because it can show how a healthy mix in the food plan helps to build a positive effect on the nutrient intake. You can also check to see if your child has received nutrients from various foods it consumed. However, the following applies: a balanced variety of fresh food normally covers the child’s nutritional need. It is recommended for a child to consume 120 grams of fruit and vegetables individually per day. Milk is a valuable and essential food element in the diet with a daily recommended amount of 300-330 millilitres.
