Question: Do toddlers ever stop? Because mine doesn’t seem to ever slow down.
If he’s not chasing the dog around the backyard, he’s zipping around the house, leaving a trail of toys and clothes in his wake. He barely stops to eat and when he does, it’s usually only because I’ve bribed him with chicken nuggets.
Apparently, this is all part of the toddler-fun phase (chaos and chicken nuggets included!). And so it’s not surprising that many mums with energetic tots on their hands opt for toddler milk, to help keep their child’s nutrition levels on par with their energy levels.
Toddler drinks are designed to give tots a daily dose of nutrients, such as Vitamin A and Omega 3 (more on what these actually mean later). But not all toddler milk is created equally, which is why it’s important to read the fine print when deciding on the right drink for your child.

Discover for yourself why Munchkin Grass Fed is our top choice toddler milk. We’re giving 100 mums the chance to try this milk-based drink and sippy cup out on your toddler and share your review to your Facebook or Instagram. (Keep scrolling to find out more.)
On the hunt for toddler milk that would match the nutritional needs of energetic tots, we stumbled upon Munchkin Grass Fed. It’s gentle on little tummies and packs in plenty of nutrients that growing toddlers need. Especially compared to traditional toddler milk.
In Fact, Munchkin Grass Fed ticks ALL the boxes for Toddler Milk:
✓ Packed with nutritional goodness (and none of the nasties)
- Milk from grass-fed cows has the ideal balance of essential fatty acids and contains up to 5x more CLA (a fatty acid found in breast milk).
- Grass Fed Milk contains Vitamin A (beta carotene), Vitamin C and Vitamin E. These antioxidants are also naturally occurring in breastmilk and help to support a strong immune system.
- Includes DHA and ARA, essential Omega 3 & 6 fatty acids, which aid in your little one’s brain and eye development.
- Munchkin Grass Fed has NO palm oil ingredients. Sourcing of palm oil is currently one of the leading causes of rainforest destruction. (It’s great for bub and the environment!)
✓ Toddlers actually LIKE the taste of it… as long as it’s in the right colour cup, of course
That’s right mums – your toddler MAY even stop whizzing around the house for five minutes to drink it. (No guarantees though as my tot still whizzes around the house WHILE drinking it – kudos to this clever sippy cup!).
It’s a yummy drink but it’s also easy to add to smoothies, purees and other kid-friendly recipes. Of course, this is especially handy if your toddler isn’t much of a milk-drinker or happens to be a fussy eater. We’ve got a few great ways to add Munchkin Grass Fed to their diet and make food fun a bit later down the page.
✓ Humane treatment of cows, healthy milk for kids
But what we especially love about this product is the story BEHIND the milk.
Since the formula is made of up to 65% milk and milk by-products, the quality of the milk plays a major role in the quality of the formula that you feed your little one. This is why Munchkin specifically chose to use 100% grass-fed cow’s milk from New Zealand.
The cows graze on peaceful pastures 365 days a year and eat only grass, foliage and plants. They have a completely GMO-free diet and are never injected with growth hormones (which are sometimes used to quickly “beef up” the cows.) Each cow is milked a maximum of two times per 24- hour period to ensure humane conditions.
What all this means is that the cows produce great tasting, pure, high-quality milk and those benefits are passed onto your child through Munchkin Grass Fed.

The Grass-Fed Difference
In the world of mass manufacturing, it’s important to know what exactly we’re feeding our kids. This is where Munchkin Grass Fed really stands out.
By choosing Munchkin we are consciously supporting the humane treatment of cows and giving our kids the best. After all, happy cows = healthy milk = healthy toddlers = happy mummies.
Sounds Great, But Will My Toddler Drink It?
You can only try! And we have the opportunity for you to do just that.
Keep scrolling to apply for a sample and a cute sippy cup too! We have 100 samples to give away to mums with toddlers 12 months and over.
Many mums do have difficulty getting their toddlers to eat or drink. Babies LOVE their milk, school-age kids LOVE their snacks, but toddlers are often at that stage where they would rather play than eat. So what do you do when your toddler won’t stop for his or her tucker? You make their tucker irresistibly delicious and FUN!
Cheeky Choccy Smoothie – Combine 3 scoops of Munchkin Grass Fed with 150mls cold water, ½ frozen banana, ½ – 1 teaspoon cocoa powder, and 1-2 pitted dates (soak in hot water first to make soft). Blend and serve in your child’s favourite cup of the day.
Perfect Pikelets – Combine 1 cup of sifted self-raising flour and ½ teaspoon baking powder in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk 1 ripe mashed banana, 2 tablespoons of honey, ¾ cup of Munchkin Grass Fed Milk and 1 egg. Gradually add the milk mixture to the flour and whisk until smooth. Cook your pikelets in a lightly greased non-stick pan with a spray of oil and serve with yoghurt, extra honey, and fruit.
Yummy, right? And great for the cows too!
