I'm a big fan of both drinks because they're the only easily available dairy alternatives I've found that have enough calories and minerals for young children. My only criticism is that the soya version is quite sweet so I'll be looking to switch to the oat." Sarah, 34, West Midlands The drinks both have the right level of sweetness. My children said that the oat flavour reminded them of popcorn and the soya tasted like custard, which were both positives. The soya milk alternative tastes most like cow’s milk and is creamier and mildly sweeter than the oat. My two-and-a-half-year-old has CMPA. Our dietician recommended the Alpro Soya Growing Up Drink when she was one and we've stayed with it ever since. I'd thought about trying an oat alternative before, but never found one with the right level of calories, fat and minerals needed as a milk substitute for dairy-free children. The Alpro Soya Growing Up Drink has been my go-to for a number of years. Having two young children who are intolerant to dairy with different symptoms, I was over the moon to find a product that they loved the taste of and that I trusted.

While the soya drink had a lovely creamy texture and taste, and mixed in very well with our hot drinks, the overall taste was far too sweet. However, we added it to a family favourite vegan cake and thoroughly enjoyed it. Alpro Soya Growing Up Drink is available to buy at Tesco, Sainsbury's, Asda, Waitrose, Morrisons and Ocado. Keep your eyes peeled for Alpro Oat Growing Up Drink landing in retailers soon. What is a First Look? I’m interested in my kids trying plant-based alternatives as my son suffered from reflux and wind/constipation when he was younger, which was likely due to dairy in my diet. He’s been exclusively breastfed and, now that he’s turned one, I’d like to reduce breastfeeding and move onto a dairy-free alternative to cow's milk. My daughter has never had any issues with dairy, but I’m interested to see what she thinks of the alternatives. An intake of one to two portions per day fits in a varied diet. The Alpro Soya Growing Up Drink 1-3+ is specifically suitable for children where an alternative to a cow’s milk-based formula is needed or required for medical (such as a cow’s milk allergy), ethical or dietary reasons. A varied, balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle is recommended for good health. We tried the Alpro Oat Growing Up Drink on cereal first and I was very surprised that my fussy toddler didn't notice the difference from her normal soya. I then gave her some in a cup. The oat drink is less sweet and has a thinner texture than the soya so I was sure she'd refuse it, but she later asked for more!

The oat drink tastes nutty and is thinner in consistency to cow’s milk. We tried it in their cereal which they both seemed to enjoy but, when I offered it to my youngest, he didn’t drink much. We persevered and, after the second day, he drank it all. We tried the soya drink on cereal and in porridge which went down well, but DS seemed to prefer the soya to oat. Taste-wise, it’s much closer to cow's milk and sweeter than the oat.

From around 18 months or so, DS stopped enjoying the taste of cow’s milk and now refuses to drink it. My husband also turned vegan in January 2019. We regularly buy shop branded unsweetened soya milk and semi-skimmed cow’s milk, but our child doesn’t like the taste of either so we’ve been looking to find a suitable replacement. We put the new Alpro Oat Growing Up Drink and the Alpro Soya Growing Up Drink to the test with six Mumsnet parents and their children. Here’s what they thought. Claire, 31, East Midlands It gives me peace of mind knowing that it’s 100 percent plant-based with nothing artificial, offers a quality source of protein (as well as containing vitamins) and provides my kids with enough calcium. We’ve used it for bedtime drinks and throughout the day, adding it to recipes and cereal each morning. The children absolutely love the sweet taste it offers, and I’ve always loved that it’s UHT so I can take it on my travels and know I have a good supply of a milk-alternative drink for them wherever I go. Source of calcium, vitamin D and protein. Calcium, vitamin D and protein are needed for normal growth and development of bone in children. A varied and balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle are recommended for good health. Meeting the nutritional needs for children 1 year plusWe tried both Alpro Growing Up Drinks as a standalone drink and in cereal. They taste sweeter than our usual brand of oat milk, but have almost half the sugar content and double the protein. Both drinks were a good consistency with the oat drink tasting slightly creamier, making it the more popular choice for drinking. The added vitamins and minerals give me reassurance that my children will be getting all the essentials needed for growth and development.
