This is important for the development of bones and teeth and helps maintain the gums. It is essential for night vision, healthy skin, hair and mucous membranes. It is sometimes referred to as the anti-infective vitamin because it is required for the proper functioning of the immune system and helps prevent infection.
Good Food Sources: milk and dairy products, organ meats such as liver, yellow and orange fruits,carrots, sweet potatoes, cantaloupe, and dark green leafy vegetables.
Vitamin D, also known as calciferol, is often called the sunshine vitamin because of the body’s ability to make it from the interaction of the sun on the skin. Vitamin D made from this process is referred to as Vitamin D3 or cholecalciferol. Vitamin D3 is also available from animal sources. Vitamin D derived from plant sources is known as Vitamin D2 or ergocalciferol. Vitamin D helps the body properly utilize calcium and phosphorus for the proper functioning of the nervous system. Recent research has confirmed that Vitamin D3 is more effective than Vitamin D2 in humans in improving the bodies Vitamin D status.1
Vitamin D is essential for the development and maintenance of healthy bones and teeth in children and adults. In children, a deficiency of Vitamin D results in rickets, a softening of the bones, which can result in bent legs. In adults, osteomalacia (a softening of the bones) or osteoporosis (thinning and weakening of the bones) can occur.
An excessive amount of Vitamin D supplementation can result in an elevated blood calcium level and can lead to calcium deposits in soft tissues, including blood vessels and kidneys, resulting in serious damage. High blood pressure, high blood cholesterol levels, diarrhea, drowsiness or headaches could also result from an overdose of Vitamin D. Before using a Vitamin D supplement in addition to formula and foods containg good levels of Vitamin D, always check with your healthcare provider who can perform a blood level test and determine the appropriate amount of Vitamin D supplementation needed per day.
For children consuming Baby’s Only Organic® formulas or Organic PediaSmart® Complete Nutrition Beverage, the amount of Vitamin D3, the preferred form of Vitamin D, in these formulas meets the recommended amounts needed daily when used as a sole source of nutrition. When used as a part of a healthy diet, the amount of Vitamin D in these formulas helps to ensure adequate Vitamin D status.
Good Food Sources: fortified milk, cheese, eggs, some fish such as sardines and salmon, and fish oils.

Vitamin E is a generic term used to describe a family of eight antioxidants – 4 tocopherols and 4 tocotrienols. However, only alpha-tocopherol is the form actively used in the body and is, therefore, the form of Vitamin E found in the largest quantity in blood and tissues. Natural Vitamin E Acetate, also known as natural alpha-tocopheryl acetate, is the commonly used form of Vitamin E in foods and vitamin supplements. Vitamin E protects Vitamin A and the essential fatty acids from oxidation in the body. It is needed for the proper functioning of nerves and muscles and helps to form red blood cells, muscle and other tissues.
A deficiency of Vitamin E has been observed in individuals with severe malnutrition or who have a malabsorption syndrome such as cystic fibrosis or cholestatic liver disease. A deficiency of Vitamin E can result in neurological symptoms such as impaired balance and coordination, muscle weakness, and damage to the retina of the eye. Excessive Vitamin E can impair blood clotting leading to hemorrhage and can have a negative effect on white blood cell functioning.
Good Food Sources: poultry, seafood, green leafy vegetables, egg yolk, nuts, seeds, wheat germ, whole grains.
Vitamin K helps the blood to clot when the body is injured and is important in bone development and repair. In babies, there is a life threatening and preventable bleeding disorder known as Vitamin K Deficiency Bleeding (VKDB). This is the reason why it is standard practice to give all newborns an injection of phylloquinone after birth.
Good Food Sources: green leafy vegetables, pork, liver, oats, wheat bran, whole grains.
Biotin is part of the B-complex of vitamins. It is thought to play a role in cell growth and is important in the metabolism of fats, carbohydrates (sugars), and some amino acids (the building blocks of protein).
Good Food Sources: eggs, meats, fish, nuts, seeds, dried beans and peas (legumes).
Folic acid, sometimes called folacin or Vitamin B9, works with vitamins B6 and B12 in protein metabolism. It is needed to make genetic material (DNA and RNA). It promotes normal red blood cell formation and reduces the risk of neural tube (brain and spine) birth defects. This is one reason why a folic acid supplement is recommended during pregnancy.
Good Food Sources: poultry, liver, dark green leafy vegetables, dried beans and peas (legumes), yeast breads, wheat germ, cereals, oranges, grapefruits.
Niacin, also known as nicotinic acid or Vitamin B3, is found in every cell of the body. It is necessary for energy production and to maintain the normal functioning of skin, nerves and the digestive tract. It can be manufactured by the body from the amino acid tryptophan. However, the amount needed by the body will usually exceed the amount that the body can produce and it is necessary to consume niacin from foods.
Good Food Sources: poultry, fish (especially tuna and salmon), beef, peanuts and peanut butter, seeds, potatoes.
Pantothenic acid is also known as Vitamin B5. It is involved in numerous chemical reactions in the body and is essential for the metabolism of fat and sugars. Pantothenic acid is also involved in the manufacture of chemicals that regulate nerve functions.
Good Food Sources: meat, fish, poultry, egg yolk, whole grain cereals, dried beans and peas (legumes).
Riboflavin: also known as Vitamin B2, is found in every cell of the body and is needed for energy production. It also helps to maintain vision and the metabolism and proper functioning of skin and nerve cells.
Good Food Sources: milk and dairy products, enriched breads, eggs, meats (especially organ meats like liver), green leafy vegetables, grains.
Thiamin: This is also known as Vitamin B1 and is important for the normal functioning of the nervous system. Thiamin also participates in the body’s ability to use protein and sugars for energy production.
Good Food Sources: whole grain and enriched grain products, pork, seafood, cereals.
Vitamin B6: This can also be referred to as pyridoxine or pyridoxal. This vitamin influences many body functions including the regulation of blood sugar levels, the manufacturing of hemoglobin in red blood cells which carries oxygen to all body cells, and the functioning of the nervous system. As protein intake increases, so does the body’s need for Vitamin B6. Also, an adequate Vitamin B6 intake decreases the requirement for niacin from food sources because it aids in the conversion of tryptophan to niacin.
Good Food Sources: chicken, fish, pork, liver, whole grains, cereals, spinach, sweet and white potatoes, bananas, prunes, watermelon.
Vitamin B12: This is also known as cobalamin because it contains the mineral cobalt. It is crucial in the reproduction of every cell in the body because it is needed to make DNA, the genetic material required for life. Vitamin B12 is essential for normal growth, healthy nerve tissue, and the formation of blood cells.
Good Food Sources: All foods of animal origin (meat, fish, poultry, eggs, milk and other dairy products) and seafood.
Vitamin C is also known as ascorbic acid. Vitamin C has received a lot of attention because of its major role in the body as an antioxidant, a substance that prevents damage to cells from free radicals and pollutants, and as a protector against infections, particularly the common cold. Vitamin C plays a role in nerve transmission, tissue repair, the conversion of cholesterol to bile acids, and the enhancement of iron absorption. Vitamin C is used by the body to make collagen, the connective tissue in skin, ligaments and bones.
Good Food Sources: citrus fruits, berries, melon, peppers, dark green leafy vegetables, sweet potatoes, plaintains, tomato and tomato products.
Choline is not a true vitamin because the body can manufacture small amounts of it. However, it must be consumed from foods to meet overall body needs especially during times of rapid growth and development such as pregnancy, lactation, and early childhood. Choline is an essential nutrient necessary for the structure and function of all cells in the body.
Good Food Sources: beef liver, egg yolk, peanut butter and peanuts, soybeans and soy products.
Although the major function of calcium is the formation and maintenance of bones and teeth, it is also needed to keep the heart pumping, muscles moving, and nerves communicating. Calcium helps regulate the passage of nutrients in and out of cells, assists in normal blood clotting, and is important to normal kidney functioning.
Good Food Sources: milk and dairy products, fish with edible bones (such as sardines and salmon), oysters, tofu, dark leafy green vegetables.
This teams with calcium to aid in bone and teeth formation, kidney function, and heart contraction. The balance of calcium and phosphorus is important in the body, especially in early childhood, to ensure that the team works together well in keeping the body’s chemical balance.
Good Food Sources: milk and dairy products, meat, fish, eggs, nuts, dried beans and peas (legumes).
This works with calcium and Vitamin C to maintain bone health. It is also necessary for energy production, the making of proteins used by the body to make cells and genetic material, the transmission of nerve impulses, the contraction and relaxation of the muscles, and maintaining the delicate electrical balance of all body cells.
Good Food Sources: soybeans and soy products, nuts, whole grains, dried beans and peas (legumes), green vegetables, whole grain breads and cereals, shellfish.
As blood passes through the tiny air sacs in the lung, oxygen attaches itself to the iron in the blood. That’s how oxygen is carried to all parts of the body. Iron combines with protein and copper to make hemoglobin, a necessary component of red blood cells that carries oxygen to the cells. Iron also is a component of myoglobin, a protein that stores oxygen specifically in muscle tissue. Approximately 90% of iron in the body is conserved and reused every day.
Good Food Sources: meat (especially organ meats like liver), dried fruits (raisins, apricots), nuts, green leafy vegetables.
This is needed for cell growth and repair, digestion and metabolism of nutrients, and is vital to the development of the reproductive organs. It also helps regulate the body’s immune response to infection and aids in wound healing.
Good Food Sources: beef, liver, oysters, wheat germ, beans, nuts.
In combination with Vitamin E, selenium works as an antioxidant to help maintain a healthy heart. Selenium provides elasticity to tissues and helps cells to defend themselves against damage from oxidation. Selenium also aids in the proper functioning of the pancreas.
Good Food Sources: seafood, poultry, egg yolks, whole grain breads and cereals, eggs, mushrooms.
This is necessary for the absorption and utilization of iron in the body. Copper has an important role in the making of red blood cells and nerve fibers. It also works with Vitamin C to form elastin, a chief component of muscle fibers in the body. Copper is involved in hair and skin coloring, sensitivity to taste.
Good Food Sources: Organ meats like liver, lobster, nuts, dried beans and peas (legumes), barley, prunes.
This is probably best known for keeping the thyroid gland healthy. It is also involved in metabolizing fats and in regulating energy production.
Good Food Sources: iodized salt, seafood.
This is used by the body as a preferred cofactor in several important enzyme systems and is essential for a healthy tendon and bone structure. It is necessary for the metabolism of thiamine and Vitamin E and helps to maintain the health of the immune and nervous systems.
Good Food Sources: whole grains and cereals, nuts, leafy vegetables, molasses, soybeans, sunflower seeds, and tea.
This is an electrolyte and works with sodium to regulate the body’s waste balance, transmit nerve impulses, and regulate muscle contraction including the heart muscles. It is essential for metabolism and the release of insulin. In babies and young children who have diarrhea or vomiting, an oral electrolyte solution such as PediaVance® containing a balance among sodium, potassium and chloride is usually recommended to help prevent the body from becoming dehydrated due to a deficiency in these electrolytes.
Good Food Sources: bananas, citrus fruits, dried fruits, deep yellow vegetables, potatoes, milk, bran cereal.
The primary role of sodium in the body is to maintain fluid balance. Sodium is an electrolyte and works with potassium and chloride to conduct electrical currents in the body and keep tissue fluids in balance. A deficiency of sodium is rare but loss of sodium through diarrhea, vomiting, or excessive sweating can cause dehydration, muscle cramps, weakness, and headaches. This is especially critical in babies and young children and the reason for use of an oral electrolyte solution such as PediaVance® with a balance of sodium, potassium and chloride when a child has diarrhea and vomiting.
Good Food Sources: salt, milk, processed foods such as luncheon meats.
This is an electrolyte and helps to maintain fluid balance in the body and also is a component of the stomach juices (hydrochloric acid) needed for digestion of foods. A deficiency of chloride is rare but loss of chloride through diarrhea, vomiting, or excessive sweating can cause an upset in the body’s fluid balance resulting in dehydration. In babies and young children who have diarrhea or vomiting, an oral electrolyte solution such as PediaVance® containing a balance among sodium, potassium and chloride is usually recommended to help prevent the body from becoming dehydrated.
Good Food Sources: salt, milk, processed foods such as luncheon meats.
Carbohydrates are one of the crucial dietary sources of energy that support the brain, enable muscular contractions, and provide the fuel necessary for a child's rapid growth, especially through 24-months of age. Each gram of carbohydrate provides 4 Calories. So it is important for a child to get adequate amounts of carbohydrates each day from good food sources.
Carbohydrates are sometimes simply called sugars or starches. They are classified scientifically as monosaccharides, disaccharides, or polysaccharides.
Monosaccharide is a one molecule sugar (referred to as a simple sugar or simple carbohydrate). Examples are glucose (sometimes called dextrose), fructose (sometimes called fruit sugar), and galactose. Glucose is the major fuel needed by the body for energy. This is why intravenous fluids (IVs) used in medical situations contain glucose (dextrose).
Disaccharide is made up of two monosaccharides (referred to as a simple sugar or simple carbohydrate). Lactose (sometimes called milk sugar) is made by the joining of one glucose molecule with one galactose molecule. Sucrose (also called table sugar) is made by joining one molecule of fructose with one molecule of glucose. The body breaks down disaccharides into monosaccharides and then converts these to glucose providing needed energy for the body. Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy and Dairy with DHA contain naturally occurring lactose which comes into the formula naturally with the organic non-fat cow’s milk. In addition, Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy with Whey Protein and Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy Whey Protein with DHA & ARA contain naturally occurring lactose plus added organic lactose. Baby’s Only Organic® LactoRelief with DHA & ARA and Soy formulas do not contain lactose; none of our formulas contain sucrose, also called table sugar.
Polysaccharide contains more than two sugar molecules. Examples of polysaccharides include corn syrup molasses, starches and organic brown rice syrup. Organic brown rice syrup is used as a source of needed carbohydrate in Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy, Dairy with DHA, LactoRelief and Soy formulas. Polysaccharides are often called complex sugars or complex carbohydrates.
Simple sugars are quickly digested and absorbed by the body into the bloodstream. As sugar levels rise in the blood, the pancreas secretes the hormone insulin. Insulin is needed to move the sugar from the blood into the cells where the sugar is then used for energy. When this process goes fast, a feeling of hunger will more likely occur sooner. When it occurs slower, the body appears to be satisfied from hunger longer. Simple sugars can cause blood sugar levels to rise quicker than complex sugars and increase the production and release of insulin by the pancreas. If the sugar in the bloodstream is not used by the body for energy, then it is stored as fat.
The longer the carbohydrate length, the slower the body breaks it down and, thus, the slower the absorption of the sugar from the intestinal tract into the bloodstream. If there is a slower absorption of the sugar, there is a slower release of insulin. Also, a slower digestion lets the body utilize the sugar for energy and there’s less potential for the sugar to be converted into fat.

Breast Milk is unique in its properties and cannot be duplicated. There are many unique compositional features in breast milk that result in its easy digestion by babies, including factors that help the breakdown of nutrients and their absorption in the gastrointestinal tract. There is no comparing the lactose digestion of a breast fed child to that of a formula fed child because manufactured formulas do not contain the many other compositional features of breast milk.
Added Lactose in formulas containing only lactose as the source of carbohydrate such as Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy with Whey Protein Formula and Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy Whey Protein with DHA & ARA, some of the lactose comes into the formula naturally as a part of the cow’s milk and the remainder is added organic lactose. The added lactose brings the total carbohydrate level to the requirement needed in a formula. In other words, the amount of lactose that comes in naturally with the cow’s milk does not totally meet the needs of a child and additional lactose must be added.
Baby’s Only Organic® LactoRelief & with DHA & ARA and Soy Formulas are the only lactose-free formulas in the U.S. that do not contain corn syrup or sucrose (table sugar).
Lactose Intolerance There are many children and adults who either lack or do not produce adequate levels of the enzyme lactase which is necessary to digest lactose. For example, preterm babies are often fed a lactose-free formula because of their inability to manufacture adequate lactase. When there are inadequate levels of lactase in the gastrointestinal tract, this is referred to as lactose intolerance. Symptoms include bloating, flatulence, loose stools, and in some cases diarrhea. If a child does not produce enough lactase, then lactose will be a problem. Also, following an illness that causes diarrhea, such as the flu, the intestinal tract’s ability to make lactase is compromised. This is often why healthcare professionals will recommend a lactose free formula for children who have had a bout of diarrhea.
There is also a medical condition called galactosemia whereby a person cannot digest galactose, which is part of lactose. Lactose is made of galactose and glucose. For people with galactosemia, they MUST avoid any dairy product or other foods that contain lactose and galactose. Baby’s Only Organic® Soy formula is appropriate for babies with galactosemia.
Proteins are essential to life and are necessary for the body’s manufacturing and maintenance of all cells and tissues, including organ and brain development, and the making of essential body constituents such as hormones and enzymes. If excess protein is consumed and not needed by the body, it is converted to fat and stored by the body as a potential future energy source. Each gram of protein provides 4 Calories.
Proteins are made up of amino acids; there are 20 amino acids. All Baby’s Only Organic® formulas provide all of the amino acids needed to support growth and development.
The protein source in Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy with Whey Protein Formula and Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy Whey Protein with DHA & ARA is organic non-fat cow’s milk and organic whey powder; the source in Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy and Dairy with DHA formulas is organic non-fat cow’s milk and the source in Baby’s Only Organic® LactoRelief with DHA/ARA Formula is organic milk protein concentrate; the source in Baby’s Only Organic® Soy Formula is organic soybean protein concentrate. When human breast milk is unavailable for a child, the recommendation is to use a dairy-based formula. A cow’s milk (dairy- based) formula is recommended because the proteins are whey (the liquid protein portion) and casein (the curd protein portion), which are proteins found in human milk. Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy with Whey Protein Formula and Baby’s Only Organic® Dairy Whey Protein with DHA & ARA consist of 60% whey and 40% casein, Baby's Only Organic® Dairy, Baby's Only Organic® Dairy with DHA and Baby's Only Organic® LactoRelief Formula consist of 18% whey and 82% casein.
The term “lipid” refers to compounds including oils, waxes, animal fats and triglycerides that do not dissolve in water. Lipids are most commonly referred to simply as fats.
Fats constitute the principal structural material of all living cells and are an important source of energy. Healthy skin and hair are maintained by fat. Fat also helps the body absorb and move the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E and K through the bloodstream. Dietary fat intake provides needed essential fatty acids to the body. These essential fatty acids are linoleic acid and linolenic acid. These are fatty acids that the body cannot make and which must be derived from foods.
Fats provide 9 Calories per gram, more than twice the amount of energy provided by a gram of carbohydrate or protein. An excess of dietary Calories provided by carbohydrates, proteins or fats will be stored in the body as adipose tissue. Adipose tissue serves as insulation for the body’s cells and organs but an excess of fat can lead to overweight and obesity. Triglycerides are the chemical form of fats that exist in foods as well as in the body
Animal fats, such as butter and lard, tend to be solid or semisolid at room temperature and are more saturated than fats from plant sources. Fats from plant sources are usually liquid at room temperature and are called oils. Most plant oils are made up of unsaturated fatty acids with the exception of coconut, palm, and palm kernel oils. There are two types of unsaturated fats:
• Monounsaturated fats: Examples include olive and canola oils.
• Polyunsaturated fats: Examples include fish, safflower, sunflower, corn, and soybean oils.
Fats are an important nutrient for babies and young children. They are needed to support growth, development and energy needs. A child who is not eating or drinking foods with adequate amounts of essential fatty acids can develop a fatty acid deficiency. This is one reason why healthcare professionals strongly advise against the use of skim or low fat milks during early childhood. Signs of an essential fatty acid deficiency include poor growth, scaly skin lesions, dry brittle nails, dandruff, and lack of hair luster.
More than 98% of the fat in human breast milk is in the form of triglycerides. The most abundant triglycerides in breast milk are the saturated fatty acids oleic acid and palmitic acid. It also contains high proportions of the essential fatty acids linoleic fatty acid and linolenic fatty acid. Human milk also contains the non-essential polyunsaturated fatty acids, DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) and ARA (arachidonic acid).
The fat blend of Baby’s Only Organic® formulas consist of organic high oleic sunflower and/or organic high oleic safflower oil, organic coconut oil, and organic soybean oil. This blend was developed because the percentages of the various types of fats are similar to breast milk. This combination of oils also provides appropriate levels of the essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (LA) and alpha-linolenic acid (ALA).
