Enfagrow® Toddler Transitions® Soy

Designed for toddlers 9-18 months experiencing fussiness and gas when soy is preferred.

Last Updated: Tuesday, July 7, 2015

  • Indication
    • Indication: Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy is nutrition tailored for toddlers 9 months and up who are transitioning from infant formula or breast milk. Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy has DHA, iron, vitamin C, vitamin E and over 20 other nutrients to help support growth and development. When toddlers transition to new foods, ensuring complete nutrition can become more of a challenge. Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy helps make sure toddlers get the nutrients they might still need—even after they outgrow infant formula.

      Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy is designed to be naturally gentle on a toddler's digestive system. It's milk- and is suitable for toddlers with milk protein sensitivity—and still provides the nutrition toddlers need to grow and develop.

      Soy-based toddler formulas, such as Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy, are appropriate for use in older infants and toddlers with lactose intolerance and galactosemia and most older infants and toddlers with IgE-mediated allergy to cow's milk protein1.

  • Preparation of Feedings
    • The baby's health depends on carefully following these instructions. Proper hygiene, preparation, dilution, use and storage are important when preparing formula. Powdered formulas are not sterile and should not be fed to infants who might have immune problems unless directed and supervised by a doctor.

      Discuss with parents which formula is appropriate for the baby.

      Discuss with parents whether they need to use cooled, boiled water for mixing and whether they need to boil clean utensils, bottles and nipples in water before use.

      Powder

      1. Wash hands thoroughly with soap and water before preparing formula.

      2. Pour desired amount of water into bottle or cup. Add powder.

      3. Cap bottle or cup and SHAKE WELL.

      Use the following chart for correct amounts of water and powder. Use the scoop in the can to measure powder. Store the DRY scoop in its original can.

      To Make|| Water Powder (use scoop inside can to measure powder) Weight
      6 fl oz bottle 6 fl oz 3 unpacked level scoops 28.2 g
      8 fl oz bottle 8 fl oz 4 unpacked level scoops 37.6 g
      1 quart 28.5 fl oz 1 1/3 unpacked level household measuring cups 135 g

      || Each scoop adds about 0.2 fl oz to the amount of prepared formula

      Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm.

      Once prepared, formula can spoil quickly. Either feed immediately or cover and store in the refrigerator at 35°-40°F (2°-4°C) for no longer than 24 hours. Do not use prepared formula if it is unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula. After feeding begins, use formula within 1 hour or discard.

      Powder Storage (cans)

      Store cans at room temperature. After opening can, keep tightly covered, store in dry area and use the contents within 1 month. Do not freeze powder, and avoid excessive heat. Use by date on bottom of can.

      CAUTION

      Use by date on bottom of can.

      WARNING: Do not use a microwave oven to prepare or warm formula. Serious burns may result.

  • Product Characteristics
    • Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy is an easily digested, balanced soy milk drink for toddlers 9 months and up who need a lactose- or milk-free formula. It has key nutrients, including vitamin C and iron and vitamin E, and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA).

      Fat

      The fat content in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy is 40% of total Calories. The fat blend consists of approximately:

      • 44% palm olein oil

      • 19% soy oil

      • 19% coconut oil

      • 15% high oleic sunflower oil

      • 3% single-cell oil blend rich in DHA and ARA

      DHA and ARA

      Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy was the first soy toddler formula in the United States to include DHA and ARA—building blocks of the toddler’s brain and eyes that are not found in cow’s milk. The level of DHA in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy is similar to that found in Enfamil® ProSobee® and to levels specified by some expert groups11-13.

      The sources of DHA and ARA in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy are the same as those for Enfamil® ProSobee® and are well tolerated and safe. Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy has the same level of DHA per serving as Enfamil PREMIUM® Infant—clinically proven to support mental, visual and immune system. In clinical studies comparing infants fed formula including DHA and ARA with infants fed formula without DHA and ARA, there were no clinically significant differences in tolerance, and the addition of DHA and ARA had no effect on the incidence of adverse events14-17.

      The sources of DHA and ARA in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy are Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) in infant formulas by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

      ¶ Studies compared Enfamil® with DHA and ARA vs discontinued Enfamil without DHA and ARA; studied before the addition of prebiotics.

      Protein

      The protein content in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy is 13% of total Calories. Soy protein isolate supplemented with the amino acid L‑methionine is the protein source. The protein is of excellent quality with good absorption and utilization.

      Carbohydrate

      The carbohydrate content in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions Soy is 47% of total Calories and consists of corn syrup solids.

      The corn syrup solids we put in our toddler drinks do not contribute to a sweet taste. Corn syrup solids provide energy for the body, are hypoallergenic and are readily digestible. The corn syrup solids used in our toddler drinks help result in a soy milk drink with a well‑tolerated carbohydrate, and taste similar to milk which should not contribute to obesity when the recommended amount is consumed (16 fl oz per day) as part of a healthy diet.

      Corn syrup solids are readily digested and well tolerated by children whose ability to digest other carbohydrates, such as lactose, is impaired. The production of corn syrup solids includes filtration and purification procedures that remove protein, the allergenic component of corn; therefore, corn syrup solids are considered hypoallergenic.
