The Whole Foods Difference of Else Nutrition
Almonds are incredibly digestible, which is important for small, developing tummies. They’re also known to have anti-inflammatory effects, which provide health benefits throughout all stages of growth and development. The essential fatty acids found in almonds are good for brain development and cognitive function.
Tapioca is an easily digestible carbohydrate for little tummies and is packed with a high amount of important nutrients. For instance, tapioca is an excellent source of vitamin C, which plays a role in immune function, and acts as an antioxidant in the body, fighting off free radicals that can lead to damage and disease.
A highly nutritious pseudograin, buckwheat is a naturally gluten-free plant that has grain-like seeds. It’s a rich source of antioxidants and plant protein as well as essential micronutrients like magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, copper, and iron. Buckwheat is also high in fiber-rich prebiotics to help promote a healthy digestive system.

Toddler Constipation Relief
Noticing a change in your child’s bowel habits can spark concern for parents and caregivers. However, you can rest assured knowing that bowel changes, particularly constipation and toddlers, is very common. In fact, according to the research, almost a quarter of all children in the United States experience constipation at some point.
Food to Help Promote Healthy Weight Gain in Toddlers
A common concern among parents and caregivers of young children is whether their child is at a healthy weight for their age and height. Kids are constantly on-the-go and have unique nutritional needs that sometimes require a boost in calories. If you’re wondering whether your child ןis not gaining weight as he is expected to, it’s important to know how to identify this and adopt the best approach to creating a nutrient -dense meal plan for them.
Sick Toddler Won't Eat or Drink?
It’s common for a toddler’s food preferences and overall appetite to fluctuate over time. All parents know the frustration of a toddler who gobbles up strawberries one day and then won’t touch them the next day. The frustration is compounded when your child gets sick.
Nutrition's Key Role in Toddler Growth
The first couple of years in a child’s life is a period of rapid growth and development, with many changes in eating and diet recommendations. While during the first year your baby's diet relies mostly on breast milk or infant formula (if breast milk is not an option), by the time they celebrate their 1st birthday, they should be eating a variety of foods from the family’s diet. At this age, they are still growing (even though the rate of growth slows) and good nutrition that meets their nutritional needs continues to play important role in growth and development.

“As a Pediatric Nurse Practitioner and mother of a child with severe Food Protein-Induced Enterocolitis Syndrome (FPIES) to dairy protein, I am so grateful for Else Toddler. Else provides an organic, clean, gentle, dairy/soy free alternative that my daughter tolerates and enjoys Else Toddler wonderfully. With supplementation, and as she increased on solids, her growth curve caught back up to an appropriate rate for her genetic heritage."

Else Nutritional shakes are a wonderful product for parents. Else has found a way to make a great tasting supplemental beverage that is low in sugar. Unlike other options on the market, it is minimally processed. Its protein is uniquely sourced from almonds and buckwheat, and it is fortified with many essential vitamins and minerals. While still not a meal replacement, I feel that Else Kids Shakes are a more nutritious option for parents who choose to give their child a supplemental beverage.

Our childhood habits have a huge impact on overall health. In fact, we can decrease diseases like diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and cancers, by improving our children's health habits. This is where Else comes in. Else is dairy free, soy free, and a plant based milk alternative that's filled with healthy fats, has a complete amino acids profile, as well as the nutrients your child needs. I'm excited as a Pediatrician that there is a real healthy plant-based option I can feel confident recommending to parents.
"My toddler was unsure till she drank it. now she prefers it over everything else. I need this in my life so bad! I can't wait for the full size to get released. It will be a staple in this house for SURE! It is AMAZING for us Dairy Free, Gluten Free parents who can't use the other supplements on the market due to allergies."
"My son is 18 months and is intolerant to both corn and milk. My son hasn't gained any weight and remained at 17 lbs for about 8 months and the doctor wrote in his notes "failure to thrive". My son has been on else toddler formula for almost a month now and he so far has gained 2 lbs and 3 ounces. This formula is a miracle and life changing for my son and for me!"
"I was having so many issues finding a formula that would help with her digestive sensitivity; even the formulas marked as 'sensitive' were causing her bowel distress and constipation. But, no more! Her bowel movements are moving along easier, she doesn't spit up anymore. Thank you Else for changing the game and helping parents like me!"
"My daughter failed all hypoallergenic formulas and all of the AA formulas as well. She was not gaining weight and failing to thrive. Else was our last resort and did it change our lives! My daughter no longer has to take GI medication and it also completely cured her reflux!"
