Breastfeeding has key health benefits for infants, both short and long term.
In the short term, breast milk delivers immune protection to the infant via antibodies and other immune-boosting nutrients. In the longer term, recent evidence suggests that breastfeeding could improve the overall health outcomes of children, for example by reducing the risk of excessive weight gain and obesity as they get older.
Breastfeeding also delivers a range of benefits for mums. It has been shown to positively impact their health through reducing the risk of both breast and ovarian cancers, as well as type 2 diabetes.
We believe that breastfeeding is more than just nutrition. Breastfeeding and breast milk are our inspiration to continue developing innovations in maternal and infant nutrition.
