Breast milk – optimal nutrition for baby
At SMA® Nutrition we are actively committed to supporting breastfeeding as the primary source of infant nutrition. Through our many years of clinical research and engagement with healthcare professionals we recognise the public health benefits of increasing breastfeeding rates. For mums and babies, this is the very best way of feeding.
