Go & Grow by Similac®, now with 2'-FL†‡

Your toddler's nutritional needs are different from when she was a baby. To add to this, mealtime can seem more like playtime now that your toddler is learning to feed herself, and it's hard to tell how much food is actually making it into her mouth.

Go & Grow by Similac® Step 3 is an everyday drink formulated to complement the nutrition of toddlers 12-36 months and is designed to help support growth and development.

NEW! Go & Grow by Similac® now contains 2'-FL.†‡ Found in breast milk, 2'-FL helps build the immune system. Go & Grow by Similac® is the first and only toddler drink with 2'-FL†‡ in Canada!

This everyday toddler drink is non-GMO*‡ and made with milk from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones.

Feel confident about complementing your child’s nutrition!

Let’s look at components in Go & Grow by Similac® that are limited in cow’s milk (per 250 mL):§



Breast milk contains many protective factors that help build the immune system. These include complex carbohydrates called human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs).1-4

HMOs are the third most abundant component of breast milk (excluding water).5,6

About 70% of the immune system is found in the digestive tract7, so maintaining a favourable environment for good bacteria in the gut can help build strong digestive and immune systems.5 HMOs, like 2'-FL, in breast milk can affect the immune system in various ways:5


    Feed the good bacteria in the Gut (Prebiotics)




    Support the developing Immune System


Nutrition beyond DHA

This everyday drink also complements your toddler's diet with an exclusive blend of DHA, lutein, and natural vitamin E.‡¥

  • This Similac® formula has DHA, an omega-3 fat for brain development

    Naturally found in breast milk, DHA, an Omega-3 fat, supports the normal physical development of the baby’s brain and eyes.

    DHA is prone to damage from oxidation — this is why breast milk also contains antioxidants, such as lutein and vitamin E, which help protect fats in body tissues, like DHA, from oxidation.

    When your baby starts eating foods, she will get DHA from fatty fish such as salmon, sardines, and tuna, as well as Omega-3 eggs.

  • This Similac® baby formula contains lutein for brain & eye development

    Lutein is an antioxidant found in breast milk and is concentrated in the baby’s brain and eyes. Our powder format of Go & Grow by Similac® contains added lutein.

    Lutein comes from solid foods like leafy greens, corn, and eggs. So until your baby starts solid foods, she can get lutein from breast milk or Go & Grow by Similac®.#

  • This Similac® infant formula contains the antioxidant

    Vitamin E is an antioxidant found in breast milk, but not all vitamin E is the same. One of the great things about our powder format of Go & Grow by Similac® is that it only uses natural vitamin E.‡¥ This is the most abundant type found in breast milk and the infant brain.

    You can only get natural vitamin E from foods. Rich food sources include dark leafy greens, eggs, fish, nuts, and seeds.
