I do not intend to stop formula milk at all. Have been giving my girl Friso Gold since young till now 6 years old and will keep giving until at least 12 years old? Because I drank formula when I was young all the way through primary school too. As long as it is any form of milk, I will not stop as long as she likes drinking since it is good for strong calcium and FM has other types nutrients added in.

It’s safe to feed toddlers pasterurised or UHT fresh milk after they turn 1 year old. Personally I only started giving fresh milk to my daughter at 3.5 years old and it’s only once a day because she is still on formula (also once a day). And i still continue giving Step 3 milk and not Step 4 because I prefer lesser maltodexterine. If cost is a factor, then be rest assured that it’s definitely safe to give pasteurized or UHT milk.

From 1 year old, you can choose to switch to a full fat cow’s milk/goat’s milk etc. Every parent has to decide what’s best, for me, I would switch as formula is expensive and not necessary. Kiddo should be getting nutrients from a varied, healthy solid food diet

u can start fresh milk once they turn 1, can opt to not give formula at all.
