We know protein is a vital part of a growing child’s diet. It doesn’t just build up muscle; it also makes up the cells in the organs of the body, as well as maintains proper body functions. Since protein is so valuable during a child’s period of rapid development, researchers have worked hard to help parents provide protein that is optimised to their kids.

But what is protein that is optimised in the first place?
Protein that is optimised for your child is quality protein in the right amount that can support a kid’s growth and development while preventing illness.

Protein that is optimised also has the right components that are important to a growing child. This includes the right amount of essential amino acids which are needed for brain development.

Finally, protein that is optimised is friendly to your kid’s digestion, easily absorbed by his little body. It helps maintain a healthy gut environment which can help avoid abdominal problems like colic, diarrhoea, or constipation.

Give enough of what your child needs.
Protein that is optimised can do so much for a kid’s health and development. Choosing to give your child protein that is optimised instead of just overloading him with the run of the mill protein could help give your child the right foundation he needs for good health and development.

NANKID® OPTIPRO® HA 3 contains OPTIPRO®, Nestlé’s Most Advanced Protein. It’s regular milk protein broken into smaller pieces, making it easier to digest. It also contains DHA & ARA, which are found abundantly in the brain, as well as 100 million BIFIDUS BL probiotics from 3 glasses of NANKID® OPTIPRO® HA 3 daily. Probiotics are beneficial bacteria that can help support your child’s protection.
