The first 1000 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

SMA® Organic Growing Up Milk has a protein level of 1.5 g/100 ml.

Information for you to give to parents

Suitable for young children from the 12th month – 3 years, as part of a healthy balanced diet.

  • Do not add extra powder or water to make the drinks stronger or weaker and do not press powder into scoop. Using too much or too little powder can make your toddler ill.
  • We recommend preparing each milk drink in individual beakers when required.
  • For hygienic reasons, discard unfinished feed in the beaker as soon as possible.
  • Made-up formulae can be poured over cereals and mixed with food.
  • Do not alter or add to formulae unless medically directed.
  • Do not warm feeds in a microwave – hot spots may occur and cause scalding.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recommended that pregnant women and new mothers be informed on the benefits and superiority of breastfeeding – in particular the fact that it provides the best nutrition and protection from illness for babies. Mothers should be given guidance on the preparation for, and maintenance of, lactation, with special emphasis on the importance of a well-balanced diet both during pregnancy and after delivery. Unnecessary introduction of partial bottle-feeding or other foods and drinks should be discouraged since it will have a negative effect on breastfeeding. Similarly, mothers should be warned of the difficulty of reversing a decision not to breastfeed. Before advising a mother to use an infant formula, she should be advised of the social and financial implications of her decision: for example, if a baby is exclusively bottle-fed, more than one can (400 g) per week will be needed, so the family circumstances and costs should be kept in mind. Mothers should be reminded that breast milk is not only the best, but also the most economical food for babies. SMA® Organic Growing Up Milk is only suitable for babies from the 12th month as part of a healthy balanced diet and it is not suitable as a breast milk substitute. The decision to start weaning or to use follow-on milk before 6 months, should be made only on the advice of a doctor, midwife, health visitor, public health nurse, dietitian or pharmacist, based on baby’s individual needs.
