Cow's milk is not suitable for infants under 3 years of age. It is too rich in proteins (mainly caseins) and sodium. It contains fats mainly made from saturated fats, it is therefore low in Essential Fatty Acids (EFA) which are essential to young children's neurological development. Finally, its iron, vitamin D and C content is also insufficient.
The No. 3 Growth milk allows milky feeding to continue satisfying the needs of children between 1 and 3 years of age. The protein content is moderate compared with cow's milk, to contribute to reducing the risk of excess related to excessive proteins from a child's varied diet. Fats provide a supply of essential fatty acids (EFA). Vitamins and minerals are dosed to meet the needs of children over one year. All these nutrients are essential for good growth and development.
