Babies develop rapidly and need relatively more protein than children and adults. Interestingly, almost every aspect of your baby’s growth is partly dependent on protein:
- It is an essential component of our body tissue such as: muscles, organs, enzymes, hormones, blood, skin and hair.
- Babies need more protein per kg in bodyweight compared to children and adults to help keep up with their speedy growth and development.
- The protein in breast milk boosts babies’ growth because its quantity and quality match what they need at each stage of development.
