Milk Powder for 6YO

Post by mama_g » Thu Feb 17, 2011 11:41 am

Hi, any recommendation for milk powder to my 6YO.
She is now drinking EnfaGrow, but they dont come in 1.8KG. So its very troublesome (as she finishes 1 tin about a week or so) and quite costly comparing to other brands.

Try Grow or switch to fresh milk.

Can't help on the cost issue, both are equally costly.

Alternatively, just go for cheaper milk powder like Nespray.

H mama_g,

I agree with Funz that you can try fresh milk. I don't think formula milk is necessary for a normal 6 year old. Actually, i don't think milk is necessary at all! But that's another topic...

Well, some say it is good to give them milk all the way up to their teens. But need not be milk powder. Switched my kids to fresh milk since they turned 2.

For me personally, the less processed and less stuff added the better. So fresh milk is the closest we can get to the original form here in Singapore.

My DD1 aged 6+ still drinks milk powder (Mamil Gold Step 4).Sharing with my DD2 aged 4. Expensive if you buy from supermarket. I bought the milk at Tampines Mart chinese medicine shop, Cheap!

I switched my DD from Milk Powder to Fresh Milk at around 5+ years old and that was when she stopped drinking from the milk bottle too... :wink:

I personally feel fresh milk is much better and more practical too, especially when you are travelling...

DS drinks both fresh and powdered milk.

He is 8 yr old and is drinking enfaSchool. I also wished enfaSchool would come in bigger tins.

I didn't know they've got EnfaSchool. What is the age group for Enfaschool? I only know of Enfagrow and Enfakid. This shows how much I have lost touch with milk powder.

mummy,

my grl is 3+ now.. still drinking Gain Kid 2 times a day. i think gain kid can be taken till 6. my girl loves her milk very much.. the two times she get to drink is so precious to her.. thus, i cant bear to stop her from her milk powder.

but i gues i can introduce her with fresh milk slowly slowly switch.. i too feel after 4 or 5, no need to drink formula milk, fresh milk is good enough.

my girl is now drinking from cup with spout. i try to switch to cup soon and see if she can accept..
