8 Best UHT Milk for Toddlers Singapore 2022

After your child turns 1, you can begin introduce full cream milk in his diet. Full cream milk can be UHT (Ultra Heat Treated), pasteurised cow's milk, or powdered for your toddler.

Ultra Heat Treatment Milk is a commonly used technique in the processing of milk by milk production facilities to ensure the food safety of the milk. In the UHT process, milk is exposed to ultra heat for a short time so as to kill off any unwanted and harmful bacteria that may be present in raw milk, yet still retaining its nutritional content.

Moreover, the higher temperatures that are used in this process also help to ensure that milk is shelf-stable when packaged. This allows the finished product to be kept in its sealed and unopened packaging at ambient room temperature for extended periods of time.


UHT milk benefits
a. Extended Shelf life
Milk that has been ultra pasteurized (UHT) is known to last far longer than regular milk. UHT milk that comes in airtight packaging has a shelf life of 6 to 9 months.

b. Safer Than Untreated Milk
The higher temperatures that are used in this process destroys the heat-resistant bacteria in your milk, which makes UHT milk safer for your kids to consume.

c. High Nutritional Value
Highly beneficial for your health, UHT milk is loaded with essential nutrients like protein, carbohydrates, calcium, zinc, potassium, phosphorous, magnesium, riboflavin, vitamins A and B12. (Source


What type of milk should I give my toddler?
Toddlers less than two years of age should have full cream milk. After two years of age, children can drink either full fat or reduced-fat milk with the rest of the family. (Source) Because toddlers have very high energy requirements and should not be taking low-fat or skimmed milk

FAQs

1. Fresh Milk vs UHT Milk
As for fresh and UHT milk, medical experts say the difference between the two is minimal. Both types of milk are pasteurised – heat-treated to destroy pathogens and bacteria.

The difference is in the way and temperature at which this process is done.

Dr Han Wee Meng, head of nutrition and dietetics at KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, says: “Both fresh and UHT milk are equally recommended for children. The choice depends on individual taste preferences and practical considerations.”

She adds that pasteurisation does not significantly alter the nutritional composition of the milk, in terms of energy, protein, calcium and phosphorous content.

While some vitamins may be lost, additional nutrients may sometimes be added back into the milk after pasteurisation. (Source)

2. When can I introduce low-fat milk to my baby?
After the age of two, parents can switch their children to low-fat milk.

However, if there is a concern about the child's growth and development, therefore it is still recommended for parents to continue to feed their children full-cream milk because it provides extra energy.
