Benefits of breastmilk

The infant formula industry knows the value of good nutrition for infants and has spent many years studying the unique and unsurpassed benefits of breast milk.

There is no question that breast milk provides the best possible nutrition for infants and is important for baby’s health. However, when a baby is not being breastfed, the only suitable and safe alternative is a scientifically developed infant formula product.

The Infant Nutrition Council is committed to supporting both breastfeeding and infant formula.
