MILO® and milk is a great nourishing drink and along with a balanced diet, helps to deliver essential nutrients for active kids that need a nutritional boost.
YOUR KID'S HEALTH
Children have unique nutrient needs, which are vital for them to grow up strong and healthy. So it’s essential they have a balanced diet that contains a range of nutrients.
MILO® is a wholesome source of nutrients that helps give your child the energy they need to get the best out of their day if they need a nutritional boost.
IMPORTANCE OF CALCIUM
Calcium is essential for the growth and development of children as it helps to maintain strong teeth and bones whilst also helping with things like muscle function.
The amount of calcium absorbed into our bones depends on the amount of calcium that we eat. The Australian Health Survey: Usual Nutrient Intakes, 2011-12 revealed that nearly three quarters of females (73%) and half of all males (51%) aged two years and over did not meet their calcium requirements based on their intakes from food.
If they need a calcium boost, your child can get more calcium by adding MILO® to skim milk. A 200ml glass of skim milk contains 240mg of calcium (AFCD-1). Adding a standard 20g serve of MILO®, which contains 170mg of calcium, increases the calcium content of the total drink to 410mg. This means a glass of MILO® and skim milk delivers 50% of the recommended dietary intake (RDI) for calcium. Research supports that MILO® can help increase milk consumption and help increase your child’s calcium intake (Nutrition Research Australia 2017)
