NO Sucrose

No Sucrose in Beta A2 Nutritional Toddler Milk

As a parent, you always want the best for your child and their health, right from the start. So, is toddler milk something you should choose for your little one?

The Beta A2 Australia company is an Australian business that provides excellent products to ensure your child is getting the right amount of the best quality nutrients for their proper growth and development.

Beta A2 Nutritional Toddler Milk has no added sucrose (known as table sugar), as it only contains the natural sugar found in all mammalian milk, known as lactose. You can be comfortable knowing that our products are all sourced from Australian cows, and are free from nasty artificial colours, flavours and preservatives.

Will my toddler even drink this if it isn’t sweetened? Of course, many of the foods a toddler is exposed to such as sweetened cereals, cordial, soft drink and chocolate-based foods can cause a gravitation away from natural core foods like plain milk.

Compared to milk from other mammals, human milk is considered unique in its high sugar content. It contains about 70 g/L lactose (7%)[1]  whereas cow’s milk (containing on average 4-5% lactose) and is actually less sweet than breast milk, which is the perfect first food for babies. Beta A2 Toddler milk contains 79g/L Lactose (7.9%) so it is a similar sweetness to breast milk and therefore it will not encourage a sweetened palate in young children.

Nourishment for growing children comes from a balanced diet containing protein for muscles and growth, carbohydrates, such as lactose, for energy, fat for essential fatty acids and absorption of    fat- soluble vitamins and fibre for healthy digestion. The Beta A2 range is formulated to the strict Food Safety Standards of Australia to ensure they are the balanced to the requirements of growing little ones.

Encouraging your child to consume Beta A2 Nutritional Toddler Milk will provide them with nourishment due to the addition of important nutrients, vitamins and minerals that are crucial for the development and growth of your child. In addition, fortification with such nutrients as DHA and AHA, important omega fatty acids, and prebiotics to stimulate good bacteria growth in the gut, plus the minerals such as iron, zinc, calcium and magnesium that are included the toddler milk, is a far better way of filling any nutritional gaps than using tablets or gum-based supplements.

The team behind Beta A2 Nutritional Toddler Milk understand that your child deserves the very best and that the overwhelming choice of products in the shopping aisle can make decision-making difficult. Be assured that our range is gentle on your younger one’s sensitive tummy as we use the A2 protein milk and that it will support your child to thrive as they leap ahead into the world.
