HiPP Dutch Stage 3 Combiotic Growing Up Milk is a wonderful complement to the expanding diet of babies and toddlers who are 12 months and older. This delicious, fully organic formula is perfect for babies who are graduating from HiPP Dutch Stage 2, as well as breastfed babies trying formula for the first time. It’s a nutritionally-complete product that can be used as an alternative or supplement to breast milk, or as a more nutritious substitute for cow’s milk. The vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients in HiPP Dutch Stage 3 are specifically designed to meet your little one’s unique nutritional needs as he or she becomes an active toddler.
Just like HiPP Dutch Stage 1 and Stage 2, the Stage 3 formula features organic lactose as its primary carbohydrate source. HiPP Dutch Stage 3 also contains prebiotics in the form of galacto-oligosaccharides derived from lactose. These prebiotic fibers contribute to a healthy gut microbiome and are thought to help strengthen the immune system. In addition to vital micronutrients such as iron, calcium, and vitamin D that are essential for bone growth, HiPP Dutch Stage 3 contains omega-3 (ALA) and omega-6 long-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids, which are thought to contribute to the healthy development of a child’s brain, eyes, and nervous systems.
HiPP Dutch Stage 3 is made with the highest-quality organic ingredients, including organic skim milk, organic whey, and a blend of organic vegetable oils. It’s easy to digest, and you won’t find any starch, gluten, sucrose, or corn syrup in this formula. All HiPP formulas are completely free from GMO ingredients and synthetic preservatives and nutrients. HiPP Dutch Stage 3 is manufactured in Germany and packaged in the Netherlands, so it meets or exceeds all of the European Union’s requirements for organic certification, which are much stricter than organic standards in the United States.
Each container of HiPP Dutch Stage 3 contains 800 grams (31.7 oz) of formula powder, which should make at least 200 fl oz of prepared formula.
