  • Do it once & you may have to do it forever! Is it sugary? Then I wouldn't.

  • How about some Breakfast Essential instead? If you're going to add anything,it might as well have nutrients
    And yes,they can have malted milk

  • I'd be careful about it, because it can make him gassy.

  • I wouldn't add anything. It's best if they get used to foods in the most natural state possible.

  • I would not. The child does not need the extra calories and the change in flavor. Milk is just fine the way it is.
    IMO you will make yourself a problem you didn't need to face.

  • Keep the kid on plain milk as long as you possibly can. Flavorings will come soon enough when the outside world starts to impose its unhealthy habits; no point in introducing them yourself.

  • Agree with others. Don't get them hooked on "flavored" stuff. They won't want anything else.
