Between the ages of 3 and 5, you'll notice that your kid learns new skills fast and begins to solve problems in their daily life. Your kid’s preschool years are a crucial time for brain development, affecting their language skills, focus, and memory—all essential for success later in life.  

So, how can you support your kid at this stage? 


The role of milk 

Milk for kids aged 3 to 5 is formulated to provide all the necessary nutrients to support brain development in early childhood. Milk is not just a good source of calcium to support bone growth; it is also rich in essential vitamins and minerals crucial at this life stage. These nutrients include vitamins A, D, and B and protein. 

Milk is also rich in vitamin B12, essential to develop and maintain myelin, the protective sheath covering nerve fibers, allowing for efficient communication between brain cells. In addition, milk contains Omega-3 fatty acids, crucial for brain development, mainly supporting your kid’s memory and cognitive function.  


Nurture a gifted brain with the right milk 

Wyeth Nutrition® offers two of the most advanced brain-boosting formulas in the growing-up milk market—PROMIL® and PROMIL Gold®.  

PROMILNutriGift System® doubles your kid's brain development with more DHA* and MOS+. DHA, or Docosahexaenoic Acid, plays a vital role in enhancing the brain development stages in early childhood as it supports brain cell communication. Meanwhile, MOS+ or milk oligosaccharides support your kid’s immune system.

A study discovered that MOS+ could. improve mucosal immune response in kids, indicating that MOS+ has a positive impact on the immune system.1 Additionally, MOS+ is clinically proven to enhance vaccine response.1 So, getting MOS+ from milk strengthens your kid’s immune system,  may support them to have more school days and better learning outcomes.

In addition to boosting immunity, MOS+ also includes Sialic Acid, which helps transfer information between neurons in the brain. Research has found that supplementing with Sialic Acid can improve brain performance, making it important for supporting your kid's memory and learning abilities.2-4

Meanwhile, PROMIL Gold® is Wyeth Nutrition’s® most advanced milk formula containing the clinically proven Nutrigift advance ™. This means that it includes Alpha-lipids that enhance a crucial brain development process called myelination, which leads to faster and more efficient brain development in childhood. 

An MRI study has found that increased myelination in the brain supports your kid’s cognitive and behavioral function, including language development.6 The MRI study was done among infants, and PROMIL Gold® has been clinically shown to increase myelination by up to +36% in brain regions involved in sensory, motor, cognitive, and language functions—all signs of rapid brain connection in the preschool years. 

Besides the brain-boosting Alpha-Lipids, PROMIL Gold® also contains HMO to support a healthy immune system , Lutein that helps protect from eye damage ,  Choline and DHA to support brain memory and development.
