      What about milk now?

      There are so many breakfast benefits for all the family, it is never worth missing out. Your toddler needs 3 main meals each day and breakfast will help set them up for the busy day ahead. Breakfast eaters also have improved concentration levels in school and work and will perform better throughout the morning.

      Now that your baby is a toddler, they do not need to drink as much milk as they did in the first year of their life, as food plays a larger role.

      The Department of Health and Children recommend breastfeeding up to 2 years and beyond. If you are still breastfeeding you should continue to feed on demand. Alternatively, we recommend just 300mls per day (i.e. two small beakers) as part of a balanced diet and consider switching to a Growing Up milk now that they have passed their first birthday. Drinking too much milk can suppress their appetite for other important foods, making them feel full and therefore less inclined to eat their meals.  Drinking too much milk will therefore prevent your toddler from eating the right balance of the different food groups in their diet.
