Cows milk vs enfagrow toddler milk

Bea

Debating which to use says that milk has 0% DHA for growing brain and only vitamin and calcium. Then enfagrow has DHA and 22 other vitamins. Does it make a difference? Should he be taking vitamins because cows milk doesn’t have enough vitamins?

    At our 1 year appointment our doctor said toddler milk is a scam and to just drink cow's milk (with vitamin D) and didn't say our daughter needed any additional vitamin supplements.

    I supplement my daughters cows milk with baby’s DHA from Nordic Naturals. I also add probiotics to her morning milk (or yogurt on the rare chance I can get her to eat it). The other vitamins offered in toddlers milk are great but only necessary if you have a picky eater. My pediatrician told me as long as my daughter is eating some kind of fruits, vegetables, and protein a couple times daily as well as drinking milk she doesn’t need a vitamin supplement (but if she becomes picky I’ll start giving one).

    Thank you for your responses, my son is a super picky eater we have days that he will skip breakfast and lunch n only eat dinner or lunch n no dinner he rather drink milk or water n not eat at all so I feel like he is not getting enough of the vitamins he needs. He is still a month away from his doctor visit so wasn’t sure if he should be given a vitamin

    Both Fairlife and Horizon have milk with added DHA and around 13 grams of protein. My 3 year old doesn't like meat but still loves her milk so that's one way she gets her protein.

    If you shop at Target their Simply Balanced brand has organic milk with added DHA. It’s less expensive. My pediatrician also told me that toddler formula is a scam, but we did use it to help transition from formula to cows milk. We only bought one container

    Enfagrow is a scam. Just give whole fat milk and real food.
