Q.

Is growing-up milk necessary?

My LO is almost 1 year. Is it necessary to give growing-up milk from 1 year, or is the normal cows milk good enough?
Second question, how much milk must they drink per day (cows milk/growing-up milk)?
Thirdly, can I give one bottle of cows milk and one bottle of growing-up milk per day?
Forthly, is growing-up milk the same as (for example) S26 nr. 3?
And lastly, can I start at one year giving milo or nesquick in the evenings before he goes to bed?

Your child can certainly go onto regular full cream cow's milk at one year. He will be on a normal diet by now so he only needs milk about 3 times a day. You do not need to use any of the other milks or formulas as long as he is eating a good healthy diet every day
