Frequently Asked Questions

What is this plant-based toddler drink?

Else Toddler is a plant-based complete nutrition drink for toddlers aged 1 year+. It is made with >90% whole foods: buckwheat, almonds, and tapioca, which provide plant-based protein (including essential amino acids), unsaturated fats, and gluten-free carbs.

What is the source of protein of Else Toddler formula?

The 2 sources of protein in Else Toddler are buckwheat and almonds. These two sources in combination provide high-quality plant-based protein sources including all nine essential amino acids.

How can Else Toddler be plant-based and still provide the fat profile needed for growth and development?

Else Toddler provides complete nutrition for ages 12 months+. Breast milk contains saturated fat and cholesterol, but these are considered non-essential as they can be made by the body. Certain types of fats, omega-6 and omega-3 fatty acids, cannot be made by the body and are ‘essential’ in the diet. The essential fatty acids are Linoleic Acid (LA, omega-6) and ALA (alpha-linolenic acid, omega-3), both of which are present in Else Toddler formula. The body can make all other omega-6 fats (ARA) and omega-3 fats (DHA, EPA) from the two essential fats LA and ALA. Else Toddler is also enriched with DHA from vegan sources.
