Specialised infant milks in the UK:
infants 0-6 months of age
If you are a health professional and want to know more about milks that are marketed for infants with special dietary needs then you can find this information here. We have updated the information as well as some of the background sections to reflect new guidance and evidence.
The report aims to provide an overview of specialised infant milks marketed in the first year of life. It also considers claims made for products and the potential efficacy in the context of what else is known, or recommended, by independent scientific bodies.
The aim is not for the information in the report to replace specialised medical care from a clinical team, but to provide independent information that health professionals can use in their discussions. We hope it will encourage health workers who require information about specialised infant milk products to be active in obtaining the specific information they need from commercial companies, and not passive recipients of marketing information.
