what is Growing Years milk?

Growing Years is organic whole milk with specially selected nutrition for growing kids. We partnered with pediatricians to identify key nutrients for ages 1 to 5, so every delicious serving provides DHA Omega-3, choline, prebiotics and high vitamin D.

DHA Omega-3

Supports
Brain Health

Learn more

DHA Omega-3 is in the Omega-3 fatty acid
family,
and it supports brain and eye health.
Omega-3
fatty acids are not produced by the body, so we
have to get them from what we eat and drink.

Every 8-ounce glass of Growing Years milk
has 50mg of DHA Omega-3.

DHA is found in most human body tissues, with
the highest amounts in the brain, nervous system
and retina of the eye.1 In the brain, DHA is
involved in with neuronal signaling. In the eye,
DHA is necessary to maintain good vision.2 DHA
Omega-3 is recognized by doctors and
nutritionists as an important part of a healthy diet.

Choline

Helps Transport
DHA in the Body

Learn more

Get 55 mg of choline in each 8-ounce glass
of Growing Years milk.

According to the American Academy of
Pediatrics, choline is an essential brain nutrient.
Although our bodies make some choline, our
diets supply the majority. However, it’s estimated
that 90% of us don’t get enough choline.

Choline has an Adequate Intake recommendation
set by the Food and Nutrition Board of the
Institute of Medicine. Choline aids in the transport
and synthesis of lipids (or fats), and it helps
transport DHA throughout the body. It’s like a
DHA delivery truck.

Prebiotics

Little Bellies

Get 1 gram of prebiotics with every 8-ounce
glass of Growing Years milk.

Prebiotics are dietary fiber that feeds friendly
gut bacteria. (Prebiotics are different than
