chocolate toddler formula is now available. I seriously can't believe that any company is encouraging mothers to give their babies a "nutritional" beverage that has 19 grams of sugar in 7 oz!! I imagine a lot of one year olds will get this in a bottle...think of their teeth!
First of all, a toddler doesn't need formula. By the time a child is one year old, they should be getting their nutrients through solid food (eating just about anything an adult eats), and they are able to have regular milk and/or breast milk. If a child doesn't like or can't tolerate milk, there are plenty of other sources for calcium.
What habits are we teaching our children if we are giving them chocolate formula when they are one year old? What are we teaching them if we give up so young on giving them real food and let them drink their nutrients?
