Breast milk is best for your baby

The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.

PEDIASURE

Between 1-12 years old, a child undergoes rapid physical and cognitive development, which needs to be supported by good nutrition. Ensuring that the child eats a complete, balanced diet then becomes crucial.

Unfortunately, throughout these growing years, it is not uncommon for the parent to encounter moments whereby food intake is compromised, such as when the child is sick, or when the child is a picky eater.

With 34 important nutrients, PediaSure gives your child complete and balanced nutrition to support optimal growth and development.

FEEDING TIPS

  • Add complementary foods

    After 6 months, complementary foods are added to an infant's diet. It is at this point where infants make a gradual transition to eating family foods.

  • Introduce variety

    Complementary foods should be varied and include adequate quantities of meat, poultry, fish or eggs, as well as vitamin A. Cow's milk should not be introduced before 12 months of age.

Feeding Tips
  • Advance the texture

    As infants grow, the consistency of complementary foods should change from semi-solid to solid foods and the variety of foods offered should increase.

  • Transition to regular meals

    Offer meals 3-4 times per day at 12-24 months of age, with additional snacks offered 1-2 times per day, as desired. This transition from on-demand feeding to regular time-based meals is a slow one, and healthy snacks are important "mini-meals" as this change takes place.

  • Nutrient dense foods

    Growing toddlers and young children are active and their nutrient needs are high relative to their small stomach size. It is advisable to include milk products, as well as meat, poultry, fish or eggs, as well as fruits and vegetables to provide necessary vitamins. Toddlers should consume milk or other dairy products 2-3 times daily, and sweetened beverages should be limited.

  • Parents play a role

    With the introduction of new foods to an infant's diet, the feeding behavior of caregivers is important too. Young children need assistance that is appropriate for their age and developmental needs to ensure that they consume adequate amounts of complementary food.
