#WhatsInTheMilk ?


We all know too much sugar in our diet, even for grown-ups is not really healthy. The Malaysian Dietary Guidelines recommends people to consume foods and beverages that are low in sugar. To help you and your child out, children between 2-6 years old should consume not more than 3 teaspoons of added sugars. Based on these numbers, you can decide how much of this food goes onto your little one’s plate.

Read the Labels!


But how do you know if the milk you're buying for your kid has too much sugar added? Read through the labels! The nutrition information panel for the recommended serving size behind each packet of growing up milk will show you the information.

Could there really be added sugars in my child’s milk?


What are added sugars? Added sugars are types of sugars and syrups added to food and drinks when they're being processed or prepared. This doesn't include natural-occuring sugars such as those in milk and fruits. How then do we know if the milk we have chosen have added sugars inside? Well, for starters, did you know that lactose is a type of natural sugar that is found in milk and dairy products? So if you find lactose listed in the ingredients list (which should not!) , it is being added into the product!
