From preconception through young childhood, solutions to help shape healthier futures.

Essentials for early life

Early life is a unique window of opportunity for nutrition to shape healthier futures. It is essential that parents-to-be, pregnant and nursing women, infants and young children receive the necessary nutrients at appropriate levels to help set infants and children on a path to a long and healthy life. Our solutions address: ensuring proper nutrition prior to conception, during pregnancy and lactation, promoting the healthy growth and development of infants during the first 1,000 days and safeguarding against nutrient shortfalls due to picky eating and/or inadequate weaning diets.
