The protein in breast milk is one of the most important nutrients for babies

1 min to read Nov 4, 2016

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.
