Product description

SCIENCE INSPIRED BY NATURE

High energy
NEW FORMULA
Feature 1

Contains 2.6 g protein and 100 kcal per 100 ml in line with the WHO/FAO guidelines for optimal catch-up growth.1

feature 2

Suitable as the sole source of nutrition for babies up to 6 months of age, and as part of a mixed feeding diet for infants and young children up to 18 months of age.

feature3

Contains a fat blend enriched with SN-2 palmitate, shown to promote softer stools.2

NOTE: NEW SMA High Energy® Formula replaced SMA PRO High Energy® as of February 2019.

SMA High Energy® will come with an updated formulation. The changes are minor and are to adjust the nutritional composition of SMA High Energy® to comply with the compositional requirements of the new Regulation (2016/128/EU) on Foodstuff for Special Medical Purposes (FSMP).

Additionally, the new formulation will make use of omega 3 from fish oil source, and the enzyme used to hydrolyse the protein will be of microbial origin.

The changes are not clinically significant.

The first 1,000 days of a baby’s life have a life-long impact on many aspects of future health.

 

The first 1,000 days are of particular importance for infants with faltering growth. Providing these infants with additional nutrition, including adequate protein and energy, vitamins and minerals, is essential to help them to achieve catch-up growth and to avoid the long-term consequences of inadequate nutrition.1,3

Important Notice:

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has recommended that pregnant women and new mothers be informed on the benefits and superiority of breastfeeding – in particular the fact that it provides the best nutrition and protection from illness for babies. Mothers should be given guidance on the preparation for, and maintenance of, lactation, with special emphasis on the importance of a well-balanced diet both during pregnancy and after delivery. Unnecessary introduction of partial bottle-feeding or other foods and drinks should be discouraged since it will have a negative effect on breastfeeding. Similarly, mothers should be warned of the difficulty of reversing a decision not to breastfeed. Before advising a mother to use an infant formula, she should be advised of the social and financial implications of her decision: for example, if a baby is exclusively bottle-fed, more than one can (400 g) per week will be needed, so the family circumstances and costs should be kept in mind. Mothers should be reminded that breast milk is not only the best, but also the most economical food for babies. If a decision to use formula is taken, it is important to give instructions on correct preparation methods, emphasising that unboiled water, unsterilised bottles or incorrect dilution can all lead to illness. This product must be used under medical supervision. SMA High Energy® is a milk based formula for the dietary management of babies and young children with medically determined high energy requirements as identified by a healthcare professional. It is suitable as the sole source of nutrition up to 6 months of age, and in conjunction with solid food up to 18 months of age. SMA High Energy®  is not intended for use with preterm babies, for whom fortified breast milk or a low birthweight formula such as SMA Gold Prem®  1 is more appropriate.
