When I cut bfing out completely at 14 mths and moved to food entirely I did use follow on milk as for a little bit I just liked the thought of it having extra vitamins. I used it in 2 bottles only morning and night. I gradually phased it out switching fully to cows milk by 18 mths once I was fully confident in dd diet.

I found it a nice crutch for a little bit. Thats all it was in my personal experience. i think cows is probabky sufficient and certainly less sugar....! I do also keep a carton or 2 in the car as emergency ( incase of traffic etc as dd likes milk/comfort alot). I switched fully because of foreign holiday and for two weeks no access to formula. Seemed idiotic to return then....

Exactly what grim says. The Toddler milks are made from cows milk anyway, and are just made to get round advertising rules.

do you mean the follow on type stuff?

I see no value or benefit in follow on milk, if the child has a reasonably balanced diet.

The only purpose for follow-on milk that I can can see is that it is allowed to be advertised, and thus creates a presence for the infant/first milks that are not allowed to be advertised (mangled grammar but I do hope you get my point)

Whats better, cows milk or powdered milk for toddlers?
