Do you have questions about your children’s required nutrition, especially on milk formula? Here’s your chance to skip sifting through a barrage of online information and get answers straight from an expert.

Milk formula comes in when advised by your child’s paediatrician.

But giving formula milk is not as straightforward as it seems, in the sense that something as simple as choosing which one to go with can be confusing, thanks to multiple brands that line the grocery shelf.

The questions don’t end there! Here are other possible Qs that could be keeping you up late at night:

  • Do I need a specialty formula?
  • My baby seems colicky, could it be a sign of milk allergy?
  • Is it better to give my baby formula with low-iron to avoid undesirable symptoms?
  • My formula-fed baby’s poop is green. Is this normal?
  • Is the expiration date important?

The good news is that whatever other questions you have on child nutrition from milk formula, we’ve got you covered.

Friso believes that things can only get better. That’s true for Friso Gold’s improved formula that uses the LockNutri process.

This is a gentle heating process that helps preserve milk protein that can be destroyed when milk is overheated during the process of creating powdered milk.

This ensures that in every cup or glass, children receive nutrients they need to be happy, in good health, and ready to face any challenges that come their way.
