What are the key differences between Enfagrow and cow's milk?

Cow's milk is nutritious and can be an important part of your child's diet. Yet during the toddler stage, while the brain is still growing rapidly, many parents prefer giving their children a drink that has a brain-building nutrient like DHA which is naturally found in fish and seaweed. Although cow's milk has important nutrients, it doesn't have DHA, and while there are DHA-fortified cow's milk options, nutritional drinks like Enfagrow have other relevant and important nutrients to support their development, such as prebiotics and iron.
