Many parents struggle to ensure their young children obtain sufficient levels of nutrients such as vitamin D and iron. But now a new study has brought some good news…
A new study published by The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition has suggested that young child formula – growing-up milk or toddler milk, as it’s more commonly called – can be used by parents as an effective and practical option to help ensure their little ones get enough iron and vitamin D.
The new study, which reveals that daily consumption of young child formula over a period of 20 weeks improves iron and vitamin D levels in young children, is based on research that was carried out on 318 healthy children aged between one and three from the UK, Germany and the Netherlands.
Low iron and vitamin D levels in young children remain a concern in the UK, as their diets don’t necessarily provide the recommended levels.
