Essential nutrition from dairy

Dairy is a great way to support childhood growth and development. The protein and calcium in milk is necessary for growth, development and strength, and contributes to normal development of muscles and bones.

Calcium is particularly important during childhood and adolescence when bone growth is at its peak. It is an essential mineral for the development and maintenance of strong teeth and bones.

The NZMP™ consumer powders range is fortified with essential vitamins and minerals including vitamins A, C and D, iron and zinc. These nutrients contribute to various bodily functions and support normal growth and development of children.

As children have high energy requirements due to their active lifestyles and growth, dairy milk can be a convenient and nutritious way to help meet those energy needs. NZMP™ ingredients provide energy in the form of carbohydrates, proteins, and fats. Dairy milk is also a hydrating beverage and can help fulfil a child's daily fluid needs. Staying adequately hydrated is important for maintaining overall health and supporting bodily functions.
