Toddler milk is marketed as a transitional formula suitable for older babies and toddlers. Pediatricians and childhood nutrition experts are urging stricter regulation toddler milk labeling. Parents should know exactly what these toddler formulas contain.

Baby formula companies are pushing branded milks known as “toddler formula” to parents looking to boost the nutrition of their young children. On Tuesday, July 28, leading nutrition experts, child health organizations and advocates, and researchers – including the UConn Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity – petitioned the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to establish regulations for labeling products sold as “toddler milks” (also known as “toddler formula” or “toddler drinks”). They recommended additional regulations to ensure that caregivers are not misled into purchasing nutritionally.

In a Citizen’s Petition filed today, children’s health advocates are ramping up pressure on FDA to address the labeling of so-called ‘transition formulas’ or ‘toddler milks. The researchers encourage the FDA to provide guidance or regulations on toddler drink labeling, which could include requiring manufacturers to include statements to consult a physician prior to use, use appropriate health and nutrition claims, and clearly differentiate between infant formula, transition formula, and toddler milks.

Questions regarding the use of GAMS should be directed to FDA’s Division of Dairy, Egg and Meat Products, Milk and Milk Products Branch in FDA’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition.

Until a comprehensive assessment is done, formulators should take into account current view of the regulatory agencies (e.g., Agence Francaise de Securite Sanitaire des Produits de Sante (AFSSAPS), Scandinavian, etc.) and may opt for other preservative options for pediatric products.

  • Oddly the FDA’s position, while utterly ludicrous and bereft of virtue, is also a step up from calling milk a symbol of white supremacy.

  • American kids dont need sht from milk but CALCi-UMM. No protien no etc etc. there already getting that from hella meat they eating but O wait hmm dosen’t almond milk give that? an is only like 60 calories an 30 percent calcium per cup! NO GROWTH HARMONES or any prossced labortory sht in it? Yeah yeah thank u 666 news an dr. Liar jus trying to promote the diary toxic agenda

  • DR. ALTMAN: If you are instructing parents to feed their babies animal milk after they are weaned from mother’s breast milk, with all that legitimate/ non-dairy industry research studies have revealed about the life altering, negative role of dairy in the etiology of the autoimmune diseases and chronic illnesses, SHAME ON YOU! There is a reason most people lose the enzyme required to digest dairy after the age of 18 24 months of age, after which time they should be eating solid foods. You’re a doctor! There is no excuse for your ignorance! Pick up a few peer-reviewed medical journals and read about the role of dairy in triggering type 1 diabetes, asthma, childhood obesity, precocious adolescence and breast and prostate cancer, to name a few!

  • Wow. Yeah ummmm that “doctor” needs to read a dictionary. Milk is not just from a lactating mammal.

    I’ll be making a video on this later on this weekend, but definitions 2 and 3 cover all plant based milks.
    Video link:

    From Webster’s Dictionary 1828 edition through current:

    MILK, noun

    1. A white fluid or liquor, secreted by certain glands in female animals, and drawn from the breasts for the nourishment of their young.

    2. The white juice of certain plants.

    3. Emulsion made by bruising seeds.

  • 1. Milk exacerbates asthma.
    2. Soy milk has numerous nutritional benefits. Milk has several nutritional drawbacks.
    3. All vitamins and minerals can be found in more than one food. Whatever soy milk or cashew milk lack can be found somewhere else other than cow’s milk.
    4. Most children get plenty of protein from the meat that they eat and don’t need to get it from cow’s milk.
    5. Her joke about the beans was a low blow she seems antivegetarian.
    6. So, Americans are not smart enough to read nutritional labels and compare the nutritional benefits of various types of drinks?

  • How about we focus on education again because it seems that the majority of our population is so dumb they can’t understand that “almond milk” is not cow milk. Can they also not read labels?

  • And we in Canada are expected to open our dairy market to this level of insanity?!?!? To all Canadians out there, refuse to buy anything dairy that’s not from our own farms. And to the Americans, good luck. I sympathise with you.

  • Dairy industry is in panic mode so putting this crap out. They comparing vitamin d fortified cow-puss milk with regular non-fortified almond MILK!

  • actually the labeling doesn’t provide sufficient information about the nutrients in it
    I’m okay with them continue to call it soy millk or almond milk as long as the labeling is improved
    just need a public education on the label is sufficient imho. Maybe include the word plant-based, which is not suitable for children under 5

  • Funny how this comes along as a trade war looms between Canada and America. Dairy is a VERY contentious issue.

    Looks like the American dairy lobby is making sure to open up local market opportunities as a hedge against tariffs by smiting the plant based competition via FDA bribes.

    The shill doctor is a nice touch, though. ��������

  • OH.MY.GOD! Those plates of food are terrifying! And feeding a baby a baby lamb! I thought I couldn’t like her any less! What an evil person!

  • Sorry but this is rubbish nobody calls it almond beverage it is Almond milk around the world and it is labeled as such. Human Milk also contains less protein than cows milk by about 1/3 rd so I dont see what point she is making. Also you have different types of milk and they contain different levels of protein and fat their is not strict guide as to what milk has to be. So unless you are going to have a standard for milk to meet certain conditions it is just a generic term in which case I dont see the issue.

  • Why would anyone have two different dead animals on one plate? And there is just no reason even if you eat meat to eat baby animals. No reason.
    I remember when my daughter was small I made all her food myself. Applesauce homemade with carrots was her favorite. My husbands sisters did give their boys chopped meat because the doctor told them fruits will make them sugar addicts later. Today, my daughter is eleven and she loves fruits and vegetables. My nephews refuse fruits and veggies.

  • I think it’s insane to force an innocent baby to eat lamb and other animals without knowing what they are actually eating. Guarantee that when the kid is around 3 and you show them how they get their food, they will either love it or think that their mother is an absolute psychopath…

  • The FDA is a corrupt / criminal / communist organization! Just like this payed by the milk company lady guest! Dairy milk is full of puss and bacteria and steroids!! The FDA is payed by Big Pharma and Monsanto to keep healthy food and supplements hidden!! Just research the guy who got thrown in prision for selling Appricot seeds to fight Cancer because they are loaded with vitamin B-17 which kills all cancer! The FDA made Appricot seeds illegal and vitamin B-17 illegal!! Total scam!!

  • Lunacy. This doctor is probably paid by the dairy lobby. She wants to tell us that if your kids don’t drink dairy milk, they’re going to be short.

  • Cows milk is for cows! Dairy is not good for you so this Doctor is stupid or she was educated using American Textbooks! Could she be a shill for Big Dairy?
