Almond Milk

Almond milk is an excellent alternative to cow’s milk especially if your child has a sensitivity or allergy to dairy products. Unsweetened varieties are naturally low in calories and sugar but it is also low in protein – an important macronutrient required for childhood development. Almond milk is a top-selling plant based milk because of its rich flavour and texture, it’s naturally high in vitamin E, a disease fighting antioxidant and store-bought varieties can be fortified with vitamin D.

Processed almond milk can contain additives including, sugar, salt, gums, flavours and emulsifiers (lecithin and carrageenan). The emulsifiers are commonly used for texture and consistency and while deemed safe may interfere with gut health. If you prefer to purchase your almond milk, look for unsweetened varieties and if possible without gums and emulsifiers.
