  • Potential Allergens
    • Enfagrow Toddler Transitions contains milk and soy.

  • 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 Weight
      6 fl oz bottle 6 fl oz 3 unpacked level scoops 27 g
      8 fl oz bottle 8 fl oz 4 unpacked level scoops 36 g
      1 quart 28.5 fl oz 1 1/3 unpacked level household measuring cups 129 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 within 1 hour or discard.

      Powder Storage (cans)

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

      CAUTION

      Use product by date on container. Nutritional powders are not sterile.

      Ready to Use

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

      2. Clean can lid, SHAKE CAN WELL and open.

      3. Pour into bottle(s) or cup(s).

      Failure to follow these instructions could result in severe harm. Opened cans and prepared formula can spoil quickly. Either feed immediately or cover and store in refrigerator at 35°-40°F (2°-4°C) for no longer than 48 hours. Do not use opened can and/or prepared formula if they are unrefrigerated for more than a total of 2 hours. Do not freeze prepared formula. After feeding begins, use formula within 1 hour or discard.

      Ready To Use Storage

      Store unopened cans at room temperature. Avoid excessive heat. Do not freeze. Use by date on top of can.

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

  • Product Characteristics
    • Enfagrow Toddler Transitions is an easily digested, balanced formula for toddlers 9 months and up. It has key nutrients, including vitamin C, iron and vitamin E, and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and arachidonic acid (ARA).

      Fat

      The fat content in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions is 48% of total Calories. The fat blend consists of approximately:

      • 44% palm olein oil

      • 19.5% soy oil

      • 19.5% coconut oil

      • 14.5% high oleic sunflower oil

      • 2.5% single-cell oil blend rich in DHA and ARA

      DHA and ARA

      Enfagrow Toddler Transitions was the first toddler formula in the United States to include DHA and ARA, two nutrients not found in cow's milk that are building blocks of the toddler's brain and eyes. The level of DHA in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions is similar to that found in typical mature U.S. breast milk (6-15 days)10-12. Average level of DHA in worldwide breast milk is 0.32% ± 0.22% (mean ± standard deviation of total fatty acids) based on an analysis of 65 studies of 2,474 women.

      The sources of DHA and ARA in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions are the same as those for Enfamil PREMIUM® Infant and are well tolerated and safe. Enfagrow Toddler Transitions has the same level of DHA per serving as Enfamil PREMIUM Infant—clinically proven# to support mental, visual and immune system development. 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 events13-16.

      The sources of DHA and ARA in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions 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 is about 10% of total Calories. The protein is of excellent quality with efficient absorption and utilization. Enfagrow Toddler Transitions has a 20:80 whey:casein ratio, similar to that of cow's milk.

      Carbohydrate

      The carbohydrate content in Enfagrow Toddler Transitions is 42% of total Calories. The blend consists of lactose (~55%) and corn syrup solids (~45%). 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 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.
