Information On Our New Aptamil Formulations

11.07.2018 – Statement in response to recent media coverage on New Aptamil Formulas

Danone Early Life Nutrition would like to provide reassurance that the new Aptamil 1st, Aptamil Follow On and Aptamil Growing Up Milk formulas are safe, well tolerated and the most advanced formulas yet. The formulas have been developed as a result of extensive research and innovation.  Prior to introduction, extensive clinical trials and quality tests were carried out. They have already been introduced in several other countries and has been very well received.

We have had a small number of queries, which we would anticipate as a result of a change in formula and are responding to them by reassuring parents we are taking their concerns seriously.

As part of this new formulation we have introduced new on-pack instructions for mixing the formula and following these instructions is important. Aptamil have provided a video on their Aptaclub website demonstrating the new on-pack instructions to parents:

The only Aptamil products that have changed formulation are:

  • Aptamil First Infant Milk powder (stage 1)
  • Aptamil Follow On Milk powder (stage 2)
  • Aptamil Growing Up Milk powders (stages 3 & 4).

All other Aptamil formulas remain unchanged.
