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.1,2

Fortified milk with iron, vitamin D and calcium

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.1

Iron needs are high from 6 months onwards9 and SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk provides 63% of an infant’s daily requirement for iron, 68% of the calcium requirement and 60% - 71% of the vitamin D requirement, in a daily serving of 500 ml.12

Omega 3 and 6 & GOS/FOS

Omega 3 and 6 & GOS/FOS

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® PRO Follow-on Milk also contains omega 3 and 6 LCPs AA and DHA. Although LCPs can be made in the body, infants have a high demand for these nutrients and can benefit from an additional source.3

Omega 3 & 6 LCPs AA and DHA support visual and brain development.3

Non-digestible carbohydrates, GOS and FOS are also known as prebiotics. Because of their structure, GOS/FOS remain largely undigested and act as a food source for the beneficial bacteria in the gut.10,11
