The formula to support your little one through toddlerhood and beyond.
When it comes to your child’s development, it’s important to ensure your little one is getting the optimum balance of vitamins, minerals and other essentials in their diet. So what’s a mum to do when it’s thought that regular cow’s milk may not contain enough DHA to fully support your toddler’s growth? Enter: Enfagrow A+ with 360° DHA Plus, which contains a unique blend of nutrients to help support your little one’s overall mental and physical development. For the uninitiated, DHA stands for docosahexaenoic acid, and it’s an essential fatty acid that is said to be important for a child’s development (more on this in a bit). Now, we can’t think of an easier way to help meet our child’s key nutritional needs than through two servings of Enfagrow A+! Here’s how it works.
First off, DHA is an essential building block for brain and eye development for children up to three. So when should your child be consuming this ingredient, you ask? The golden period is during your child’s early years, where much of the important development occurs. The good news? Enfagrow A+ is here to see your child through his or her growing-up years, after they turn one. A serving of this formula twice daily is all your child needs to hit the recommended daily intake of DHA!*
That’s not all…
DHA isn’t the only key ingredient in Enfagrow A+ with 360° DHA Plus: there’s also beta-glucan, dietary fibre (PDX) and prebiotics (GOS). Let’s break these down. As you might already know, dietary fibre aids with digestion alongside prebiotics, which promote the growth of good Bifidus bacteria to help maintain a healthy digestive system. On the other hand, beta-glucan is one of the key nutrients (others like vitamin B, iron and zinc are also present in this formula!) that help support your child’s overall development.
Fun fact: A finding published in Pediatrics, the journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics, showed that children consuming milk fortified with DHA, PDX + GOS and Beta-Glucan have fewer episodes of acute respiratory infections, compared to children consuming unfortified milk.

* Two servings of Enfagrow A+ per day helps to meet the recommended daily DHA intake. FAO/WHO recommends daily dietary DHA intake of 10-12mg/kg body weight for children 12-24 months or 100-150mg DHA+EPA for children 2 years old and above, 150-200mg DHA+EPA for children 4 years old and above, 200-250mg DHA+EPA for children 6-10 years old.
