Ideal Choice of Milk Based on Age
Hi, Friends of SlimGourmet! Do you know that the type of milk you should drink changes based on your age? The ideal choice of milk changes according to the different nutritional needs of each person according to their age and weight status.
For infants age 0-6 months, breast milk is the best milk because it contains all the nutritional components needed for them, including colostrum. At the age of 6-12 months, besides breast milk, they can consume formula milk and complementary foods to fulfill their nutrition needs.Nutrition contents in milk needed for children are carbohydrate, protein, fat, EPA, DHA, calcium, and choline to help in bone and brain development, especially during the golden age period. In adults, drinking milk is highly recommended to fulfill their calcium daily needs to prevent osteopenia and osteoporosis as their body’s calcium reserve Is reduced.
Milk with regular fat content is permitted for children aged 1-2 years old. Low fat / non fat and high calcium milk is recommended for age 2 years old and older, except for children who are extremely active or underweight.Unhealthy lifestyle factors have an impact in increasing overweight and osteoporosis prevalency in Indonesia. Therefore, SlimGourmet always uses low fat and high calcium milk, for example for when we make desserts, and as a substitute for cream in “creamy” maincourse sauces and soup. Rest assured that we, SlimGourmet’s team, always choose the healthiest and best ingredients to fulfill our client’s nutritional needs.
Let’s live healthy, happy, and prosperous with SlimGourmet!
