NESTLÉ®Infant & Toddler Cereal - babies' ideal semi-solid and solid food
Why we need to introduce solid food to babies?
Babies need more nutrients for growth with their increased physical activities. Breast milk and infant formula alone may not fulfill their requirements. Introducing solid food to baby is crucial for healthy growth at the stage when they can start to control their head movements and sit, with their weight becoming twice of the birth weight. Infant cereal not only helps baby to develop eating skills but also get them ready for adult eating mode. Baby can continue toddler cereal after one year old. Toddler cereal has a thicker texture; it is a healthy solid food for toddlers which can be easily prepared.
How to choose "solid food" for babies?
Chinese babies are fed with congee traditionally; but, some of the nutrients like protein, dietary fibre, and others are mainly contributed by meat and vegetables. Babies' digestive system and eating skills are not yet mature enough to digest solid food, leading to less nutrient intake. Also, babies have limited gastric capacity. Hence, babies need a nutrient-rich food to cater to their rapid growth. NESTLÉ® Infant & Toddler Cereal are designed to provide multiple nutrition in a meal.
1. 添加BL益生菌及FOS益菌生纖維 Added with Bifidus BL and FOS
Bifidus BL is a probiotic found in babies’ gut and FOS is a prebiotic ( a soluble dietary fibre). A combination of both may help to balance the gut flora and maintain gut health.
2. 易消化吸收配方 Easy to digest and to absorb formula
Special carbohydrate hydrolysis technique break down from larger capacity of particle to smaller one, which leads to easy digestion and absorption.
3. 添加DHA、多種維他命及礦物質 Enriched with DHA, multi-vitamins and minerals
DHA is a vital element for body cell development; while multi-vitamins and minerals ensure normal growth for babies. High calcium helps to strengthen bones and teeth development.
4. 多種口味選擇及不同稀杰度 Variety of tastes and textures
Five different tastes and textures to fit different ages of babies. It is suggested to start with a single flavor with a thin texture, and moving to a variety of tastes when the baby has adapted or grown older. After the age of one year, your baby can have a more complex texture by adding smaller fruit and vegetable pieces with the infant cereal. This fulfills babies’ satiety and trains their eating skill and oral cavity muscle. It is also recommended to continue feeding the babies with infant cereal when they grow up.
