MILK BASED POWDER
Should I add an older baby/toddler formula to my child's diet?
GRADUATES® Gentle formula is specially designed with nutrients that support the needs of growing older babies and toddlers:
- Calcium to support growing bones and teeth
- 25 nutrients to support healthy growth and development
- Omega 3 DHA and Omega 6 ARA for brain and eye development
Good to Remember
As your active little one transitions to solid foods, it may be difficult to get your child to slow down long enough to eat a balanced diet. GRADUATES Gentle formula can help provide nutrition assurance.
