Nutricia Early Life Nutrition’s promise

Like you, we care about mums and their babies’ healthy development. The aim of Nutricia Early Life Nutrition is to help you in support of mums, so that they can give their babies the best possible nutritional start in life. That’s why we continue to pioneer research into infant nutrition and are committed to always:

  • Respecting relevant regulations on the promotion of infant formula
  • Supporting you in your aim to assist mums to continue to breastfeed
  • Giving you information about all formula milks, not just our own where available
  • Keeping access to our healthcare professional website secure, so that information about feeding is only available to healthcare professionals that wish to access it.
