Increased requirements for specific nutrients occur at 4-6 yrs, compared to 1-3 years. Our Stage 4 Growing Up formula is designed for 2–6-year-old children and provides 2 different dosage levels for 2-3 years and 4-6 years.
Covering wider age ranges runs the risk of not catering properly to specific age groups, which have their own recommended levels of intake for specific nutrients. This approach has a higher likelihood of providing imbalanced nutrient levels and may not be as safe. For example, catering for younger groups may cause a shortfall in older groups.
We work hard to make sure our formulas are tailored to specific growth phases, rather than a “one size fits all” approach.
