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

Studies suggest that excessive protein in early life is linked with rapid growth and higher risk of later obesity.8,9

Research shows the importance of providing the right amount of protein in the early diet to help support appropriate growth.1,8-9

SMA® PRO Growing Up Milk has a lower protein level of 1g/100ml and is enriched with iron to help support normal cognitive development. Also contains omega 3 and 6* and iodine to help support normal growth.

Evidence shows that young children who consumed growing up milks (compared with those whose main milk was cows’ milk) had a higher mean intake of vitamin D and iron, and a lower more appropriate intake of protein10

Use of a Growing Up Milk can help to decrease the intake of protein in the diet, compared to a diet that includes unfortified cows’ milk11

A fortified milk with vitamin D, calcium, iron and iodine

The latest infant 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.12

The National Pre-School Nutrition Survey in Ireland reported that 23% of 1-year-olds and about 10% of 2- and 3-year-olds had inadequate intake of iron. Intake of vitamin D was generally low indicating that a significant proportion of children may be at risk of inadequate intake of vitamin D, particularly in winter.13

Between 6 and 24 months, young children have a high requirement for iron due to rapid growth and nervous system development. Iron deficiency can lead to reduced cognitive function14 and vitamin D deficiency can result in rickets.15

A Growing Up Milk, such as SMA® PRO Growing Up Milk, can help to increase the intake of iron and vitamin D.
