Are Danone Nutricia products still available?

You can find them in your usual point of sales.
At Danone Nutricia Early Life Nutrition, we support the World Health Organization (WHO) global public health recommendation that calls for exclusive breast-feeding for the first six months of age and continued breast-feeding up to two years and beyond, combined with the safe introduction of appropriate complementary foods.
Combined breast and bottle feeding in the first weeks of life may reduce the supply of your own breast milk and reversing the decision not to breastfeed is difficult. The social and financial implications of using an infant milk should be considered.
Please consult a healthcare professional to make an informed choice on feeding your baby milks & weaning onto solid foods (after six months).
Note that improper use of an infant milk or inappropriate foods or feeding methods may present a health hazard. If you use an infant milk, you should follow manufacturer’s instructions for use carefully – failure to follow the instructions may make your baby ill.
Some local regulatory authorities in Africa require changes on the primary and or secondary packaging of our products.
Consequently, the look and feel of our products may vary slightly from country to country to be compliant with the local regulations.
To ensure that you get the compliant product for your country, kindly consult your Healthcare Professional to help you make the right choices for your baby.
Breastfeeding is best for babies
Breastfeeding is best for babies and provides many benefits. As the natural way of feeding, breast milk gives your baby the best start in life. Breast milk contains all the nutrients needed and a combination of hormones, antibodies and prebiotics that help support their immune systems and promote healthy growth and development. It is important that, in preparation for and during breastfeeding, you eat a healthy, balanced diet.
