Frequently Asked Questions
What is this plant-based toddler drink?
Else Toddler is a plant-based complete nutrition drink for toddlers aged 1-3 years. It is made with >90% whole foods: buckwheat, almonds, and tapioca that provides plant-protein, unsaturated fats, and gluten-free carbs. Enriched with essential vitamins, minerals and DHA.
What is the source of protein of Else Toddler?
The 2 sources of protein in Else Toddler are buckwheat and almonds. The combination of both sources is high-quality plant-based protein sources that contain all the essential amino acids.
How can Else Toddler be plant-based and still provide the fat profile needed for growth and development?
Else Toddler is complete nutrition for ages 12 months+. Mammalian milk does contain saturated fat and cholesterol, but these are not essential because 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). 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.
What makes Else Toddler special?
Else Toddler is made with minimally processed, whole food ingredients: almonds and buckwheat, leaving in more whole food nutrients for natural nourishment and digestion.
Else Toddler is a tasty alternative to cow’s milk and soy formulas. Full of goodness, with no added “nasties” like corn syrup solids, artificial flavours, colours, preservatives or GMOs.
What’s the difference between Else Toddler and regular almond milk?
Almond milk is made from almonds and filtered water. As such, it is low in calories, protein, and many micronutrients. The protein is not complete.

What is Clean Label certification, what does it mean?

Clean Label Purity Award certified means this product has undergone rigorous independent testing to ensure it is safe from over 400 contaminants of concern e.g., heavy metals, pesticide residues, and plasticisers.

UK Department of Health recommends 2-3 servings of dairy products per day for a well-balanced, nutritionally complete diet; this amount provides approximately 25% to 30% of total energy needs for healthy toddlers ages 12-36 months.
