1. Toddlers need a higher nutritional density in their diet than adults ...

…like for example 4 times more iron and 3 times more calcium in relation to their body weight. Products for toddlers are composed of particularly valuable ingredients and are partly enriched.

2. Toddlers should consume less salt via their food than adults…

…because they should not get used to salty food. Furthermore, it can help to prevent high blood pressure later in life (EU Directive on Early Childhood Products).

3. Toddlers should not consume unnecessary sugar via their food….

…because they should not get used to food that is overly sweet. Furthermore, this can help to prevent overweight and tooth decay. Products for toddlers such as desserts, fruit bars, and snacks are limited in their content of sugar (EU Directive on Early Childhood Products). Growing-up milk does not contain supplemented sugar – it only contains the carbohydrate lactose that is inherently contained in milk.

4. Toddlers cannot chew all foods properly yet…

…products for toddlers are especially adapted in terms of their chunks and their texture. 

5. Toddlers are in their growth phase…

…so they are more sensitive to contaminants. Practically, food for toddlers must not contain any contaminants and residues (EU Directive on Early Childhood Products).

6. Toddlers are more prone to infections ...

…and are also more sensitive to food that is contaminated. Therefore, products for toddlers are hygienically safe.

7. Some additives that are used in a lot of foods are not permitted in food for toddlers…

…products for toddlers do not contain any of these additives (as required by law).

8. Toddlers should get used to a natural and healthy diet as early as possible...

…this is why products for toddlers contain lots of healthy ingredients such as vegetables and fruit. They should only be seasoned mildly – without flavour enhancers and unnecessary flavourings.

9. The way food is presented is very important for toddlers…

...products for toddlers can make eating fun because their packaging and shape is fancy.

10. Toddlers have to learn how to eat by themselves, how to take a bite and chew properly…

...toddlers’ products for nibbling are designed to be held by little hands and they don’t make a big mess when eaten. So these products can encourage little ones to eat by themselves.
