When children are infants their feeds revolve around one thing: Milk. As they get older and their diet broadens, the nutritional advice gets more complicated.
The advice given about milk, once the bedrock of your child’s diet, becomes less prominent. It can be difficult to keep track of the latest nutritional advice and I had one or two, ahem, ‘passionate’ discussions with Mrs Adams on this very issue. We both had different opinions as to the approach we should take to giving our daughters, Helen and Izzy, milk once they hit the pre-school years.
Here are five things you need to know about pre-schoolers and milk. These tips come from a tip-sheet produced for the leader in light protection technology for packaging, Noluma, by food specialists Dr Catherine Birch and Prof Graham Bonwick from Newcastle University.
I have to confess, that last point came as a particular surprise to me.
It has never occurred to me that the bottle the milk is in can leave it particularly susceptible to being damaged by light. Indoor lights such as LED lights and fluorescent lights can all have an impact.
If you want to find out more, or let your favourite retailer or milk brand know you want them to light protect their products, visit the ‘get involved‘ page.
Noluma’s tips have certainly got me thinking about how light can affect the nutritional value of milk. Is this something you would think of? Is it an issue you’ve ever considered? If so, I’d encourage you to get involved.
