Similac Go and Grow — Baby Nutrition Similar To Lactation
A your baby’s nutrition needs grow exponentially after the first few months of life. Older milk formulas may not be able anymore to provide the necessary nutrients, and your milk output may not be able to cope up with your baby’s increased demand. Around this time, the baby is now getting ready for table food. Similac Go and Grow for babies 9-24 months old can help bridge the nutrition gap that may be associated with this transition to table foods.
This transition period covers an exciting time for you and your baby. This is the time to learn your baby’s likes and dislikes — anything your baby doesn’t like will end up everywhere, but not where it should be — not swallowed nor digested. Unfortunately, messing up could also mean that your toddler is missing out on vital nutrients.
Similac Go and Grow has vital nutrients for your baby’s health
Similac Go and Grow is formulated to bridge this nutrition gap. Just one 8-oz cup will give:
• More than 25 vitamins and minerals that your baby needs to stay strong and healthy
• At least 30% of the recommended daily value of calcium, iron, vitamin C, and vitamin E
• DHA/ARA to support your baby’s brain and eye development
SImilac Go and Grow also has lutein (the only formula that has it, except breast milk), which is beneficial for sight and eye development.The formula also helps boost your baby’s immune system by containing important nucleotides, and has prebiotics to promote digestive health. Its oil-free blend provides excellent calcium absorption, resulting to stronger bones for your baby.
Similac Go & Grow baby formula has 8mcg of Vitamin K, 60mcg of Vitamin B6, 60 IU of Vitamin D, 100mcg of Vitamin B1, 300 IU of Vitamin A, 195mg of calcium, 2mg of iron and 3g of protein.
Choose Similac Go and Grow to avoid:
