New SMA® ORGANIC Follow-on Milk has been reformulated in line with the New European Legislation on infant and follow-on milks. The levels of vitamins, minerals and omega 3 oils have been provided at the recommended amounts.

SMA® ORGANIC Follow-on Milk, our only organic certified follow-on milk. It contains Iron to help support normal cognitive development, as well as vitamin D, calcium and omega 3 & 6.

Fortified with iron, which UK & Irish dietary surveys show can be lacking in infant diets.5,6 Iron helps to support normal cognitive development.

Vitamin D to support the normal function of the immune system, together with calcium to help support the normal growth and development of bone.

Omega 3 and 6* to help support normal growth and development of children, and omega 3 LCP to support brain and eye development.4

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

 

As babies start to receive complementary food at around 6 months, it’s important they continue to receive good quality protein at an appropriate level. National dietary surveys show that in infants over 6 months, average daily protein intake exceeds recommendations and intakes of iron and vitamin D may be sub-optimal.5,6

Fortified milk with iron, vitamin D, calcium, and omega 3 and 6

The latest infant dietary survey shows that in the UK 10–14% of infants aged 7–11 months have an iron intake less than the LRNI.5

Iron needs are high from 6 months onwards10 and SMA® ORGANIC Follow-on Milk provides 54% of an infant’s daily requirement11 of iron, 53% of the calcium requirement11 and 85% of the vitamin D12 requirement, in a daily serving of 500 ml.

Omega 3 and 6 essential fatty acids support normal development and growth.* Omega 3,    α-linolenic acid, and omega 6, linoleic acid, are essential fatty acids because they cannot be synthesised in the body, therefore they need to be obtained through the diet.

SMA® ORGANIC Follow-on Milk also contains omega 3 LCP (DHA). This is to help ensure that infants aren’t missing out on these important nutrients. Although LCPs can be made in the body, infants have a high demand for these nutrients and can benefit from an additional source.

Omega 3 LCP (DHA) support brain and eye development.4

*The beneficial effect of essential fatty acids is obtained with a daily intake of 10 g of linoleic acid and 2 g of α-linolenic acid

DHA, docosahexaenoic acid

LCPs, long-chain polyunsaturates

LRNI, lower reference nutrient intake
