Cow & Gate
Cow and Gate says: 'Cow & Gate Growing Up Milk helps support your toddler's amazing development! Did you know that between the ages of one and three, toddlers grow 40 percent in weight and height but also that a significant amount of brain and organ development takes place? It's an amazing growth stage. As a result a toddler's nutritional needs can be up to four times higher than an adult's for their size. Cow & Gate Growing Up Milk has been specially developed to meet the nutritional needs of toddlers. Made from cows' milk and enriched with key nutrients, it's a practical way of providing your toddler with the vitamins and minerals they need every day. Two beakers a day provide a blend of Iron & calcium, Vitamins A, C & D, Omega 3 & 6.'
