Dairy–coco milk good for malnourished kids
by DOST–FNRI release

Coconut skim milk and dairy-coco milk blend can provide similar benefits as cow’s milk in helping reduce underweight and stunting among children.

This is according to a study conducted by the Department of Science and Technology’s Food and Nutrition Research Institute.

Underweight and stunted schoolchildren were randomly allocated into three groups. The children in each group were given 200 milliliter of unbranded liquid form of either cow’s milk, coconut skim milk or the dairy-coco milk blend for a 95 feeding-day period.

A significant increase in the mean weight and height of all child-participants was noted after the 95 feeding-day period of the study. Carbohydrate, protein, fats and calcium intakes significantly increased in all milk type groups and contributed to increasing the total energy intake of the children.

All children in the study indicated that they “like very much” or “like moderately” all types of the milk. As the study shows, cow’s milk is not the only way to give your children the extra boost they need to grow properly; coconut skim milk or a dairy-coco milk blend can provide the necessary nutrients as well.
