As recommended by WHO, breastfeeding should ideally continue beyond infancy. When breastfeeding decreases or stops after 12 months of age, whole cow’s milk or growing up milks are the first-line choices for young children. Different views exist in the scientific community on whether growing up milk have any nutritional benefits when compared to other foods that can constitute the normal diet.
