Early life nutrition

Life stages

At FrieslandCampina Ingredients, we believe that the inside matters. And at no other time is that more true than when preparing for parenthood, and in the early years of life. That’s why, for over 75 years, we’ve pioneered the development and application of high quality ingredients that support health at these crucial moments. Through our work with global and local brands, we’ve built up a unique knowledge of maternal, infant and children’s nutrition. Our detailed consumer research guides our relentless product development, while our partnerships with academia and industry keep us at the forefront of scientific exploration and advances. And our passion drives our commitment to do more, and do better – bringing forward a future where every single child grows up healthy.
