Growth has to be nurtured.
They may be amazing feats of human engineering, but babies and children need a lot of help in their early days and years.
Nutrition is key, providing building blocks for cognition, protection and a healthy digestive system – all the essentials to grow thriving children the world over.
Why we’ve chosen to focus on this area?
Breast milk is the ultimate personalised food. Its composition is very dynamic and complex - with protein, fat and carbohydrate levels changing over the stages of lactation.
However, when an infant is unable to be breastfed, a suitable alternative needs to be found, especially as early childhood is the most rapid period of development in a human life.
Quality nutrition at this critical stage is essential to enable healthy growth and development.
