What is toddler milk? And why is it important?

There’s been a lot of back and forth on the role of toddler milk in a little one's diet. Some have called it unnecessary while others highlight it as an important addition to a toddler diet. At LittleOak, we always encourage people to properly investigate and assess the nutritional quality of any product that we feed our little ones. After all, that's how LittleOak was born. The debate around toddler milk is one that is especially important to us, and we’d love to dive a little deeper.

Not all toddler milks are created equal

Founder and CEO, Elke Pascoe, launched our little company to fill a much-needed gap in the infant nutrition industry. It seemed that most options contained artificial ingredients and were chemical-laden, and she wanted to do things differently. We uncompromisingly reject chemical processing, synthetics and additives, and instead let our fresh, whole goat milk do all the talking. It's that naturally good. So much so, our natural goat milk toddler milk can play a crucial role in addressing and preventing dietary deficiencies in children and adolescents.

Meet the picky eater

We are a team of mums and dads and we know that getting your little one to eat a nutritionally complete diet can be near-impossible on most days. In fact, did you know that one in four toddlers are classified as picky eaters? It can be a very real challenge for parents to ensure their little ones are meeting all their nutrient and vitamin requirements. But what does this mean down the line?

Studies have shown that dietary deficiencies in early childhood can negatively impact cognitive development and result in lower IQs, increased risk of anxiety, depression and ADHD in older children. When we meet these nutritional requirements early on, we truly do give our children the best possible start in life. You can think of a toddler milk as a “fortified” milk, helping to bridge the nutritional deficiencies that arise from picky eating.
