Nutrition for Babies and Children Good health from infancy

Breast milk is the best form of nutrition for infants during their initial stages of development and is therefore recommended without any reservations by the WHO. However, if breastfeeding is not possible, high-quality ingredients are needed to produce infant formula and follow-up products.

Milk Drinks For Happy Moments

Milk drinks are a truly classic product and are becoming increasingly popular, in particular in the form of quick on-the-go refreshments. This is because a large selection of these drinks are now available, fully based on customer preferences.
