leaf

The only Follow-on Milk in the UK&I supported by clinical trials which demonstrated appropriate growth from 4-12months1,2

Shield

The lowest protein follow-on milk in UK&I3-6 – studies suggest that excessive protein in early life is linked with rapid growth and higher risk of later obesity.7,8

growth

Contains Vitamin D together with calcium to help support the normal growth and development of bone.

SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk now contains 2’FL* which is the most abundant oligosaccharide found in breast milk.9

Research suggests that infants fed a formula supplemented with human milk oligosaccharide 2’FL* had immune markers closer to breast-fed infants10

Halal Certified

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.11, 12

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.11

Iron needs are high from 6 months onwards13. SMA® PRO Follow-on Milk provides 58% of an infant's requirements for iron, 63% of the calcium requirement and 85-100% of the viatmin D requirement, in a daily serving of 500ml14,15.
