This is to follow-up on the earlier posting about Gor Gor and Milo drink.
Many parents nowadays forgotten about the importance of giving milk to their children, after they have started primary schools. This could be due to their busy schedule and also the child’s busy schedule. Drinking milk is still very important even though your child may have grow up and now in primary school.
Young children at this growing phase needs more calories and milk is a good source of energy for them. In addition, milk contains calcium which is very important for the development of bones for children at this stage. Unfortunately, many children at this age does not like to drink milk as they feel the milk are not very tasty compared to soft drinks.
As parents, you should continue to encourage your kids to drink milk, at least one glass a day, preferably more than that if possible. If they do not like to drink formula milk, you can give them Milo which is a malt chocolate drink which can be mixed with milk for drinking.
Some parents maybe worried that drinking too much milk may cause obesity in the children. Generally, children who are obese are caused by excessive consumption of other food like fries and lack of exercise. If you can control what they eat and let them have enough physical activities, there is no worries about obesity at this young age.
