Why the RightNutrients for your child are important

Why It Matters: Importance of RightNutrients for your child

Your child needs the RightNutrients to maintain optimal health. RightNutrients include essential and non-essential nutrients that are both vital to a child’s growth and development1.

Lactose, another important essential nutrient for children, is the natural sugar of milk that provides the optimal source of energy and multiple health benefits for a developing child3. This nutrient is particularly important from birth until two years of age as it provides the bulk of energy during this time. Among exclusively breastfed infants from birth to 6 months, lactose is the infant’s sole source of carbohydrate to provide for his energy needs. It also reduces the risk of obesity4-6, supports healthy teeth7, healthy digestion8, supports immunity by early shaping of intestinal microbiota9, supports brain development10, and enhances absorption of some nutrients11-12.

Since lactose is the only natural sugar in milk, all other sugars that may be found in commercial milk formula are collectively called “added sugar”. Excessive consumption of added sugars, has been shown to play a major role in the increasing childhood obesity prevalence13-14 and higher risk for Type 2 Diabetes14.

The RightNutrients provides a good balance of macro- and micronutrients in the form of protein, fats, carbohydrates, vitamins, and minerals, the right balance of essential to non-essential nutrients, good nutrient absorption to support optimum growth and development, especially in the first 1000 days where a child’s metabolism, organ, and system development are at its most rapid phase2.
