Is Whey Protein Powder safe for toddlers?

In most cases the answer is no and protein powder presents unsafe risks to toddlers and all children. Protein supplements provide too much protein for toddlers and this can be hard on your child’s kidneys and liver as well as interfere with calcium absorption. So in most cases, the use of protein powder by toddlers is not safe and may be dangerous.

If you believe your toddler needs extra protein due to poor appetite or other health issues, you should seek advice on any use of protein powder from a health professional.
