Our Little Man will turn three this August. Though I love it that he still breastfeeds, I believe it is prudent to introduce him to milk formula, too. Because although breast milk is the best nutritional choice for children, in some cases, breastfeeding may not be possible.
It has always been my toddler’s health that I am after. I want him to remain healthy and well fed. I always believe that milk is important because, for one, it is rich in calcium and phosphorus. These two are crucial to my boy’s bone and tooth development. Likewise, drinking milk is a great way to stay hydrated. With the many physical activities my young man does, he needs to rehydrate after his strenuous workouts. To add, milk contains vitamins and minerals to keep my guy active, healthy, and strong. Milk also provides protein which helps in my boy’s body repair and growth.
Thus, imagine my long ordeal in looking for the best milk for my toddler. You see, food processed with high heat results for the natural structure of proteins to be damaged and destroyed. The same goes for milk formula. Once proteins are damaged, they may not be easily absorbed and this may cause the child to suffer from protein indigestion. To some, they get stomach discomfort.
