At SMA® Nutrition we know that the first 1,000 days (day of conception to second birthday) of a baby’s life are key when it comes to development and how this crucial time shapes the way they grow and learn – not just now, but during his or her whole life.

With over 50 years of protein research, SMA® Nutrition have gained a deep understanding of the important role protein plays in a baby’s development. This knowledge is why they’re passionate about educating mums on the importance of protein during the first 1,000 days of a baby’s life.

Although the majority of mums feel confident as to the types of nutrients babies need to develop, research conducted by SMA Nutrition found that 80% of women surveyed were unaware as to whether or not infants and young children are consuming too much protein.

Protein is a key component of breast milk that helps to ensure healthy growth and development. The levels of protein decrease as your baby grows, meaning exactly the right quality and quantity of this nutrient are given, helping them grow at a steady rate.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The best way to feed a baby is to breastfeed, as breast milk provides the ideal balanced diet and protection against illness for your baby and also many non-nutritional benefits for both baby and mother. We recommend that you speak to your healthcare professional when deciding on your choice of feeding your baby. Professional guidance should also be sought on the preparation for and maintenance of breastfeeding. If you do choose to breastfeed, it’s important to eat a healthy, balanced diet. A decision not to breastfeed, or to introduce partial bottle-feeding, will reduce the supply of breast milk. If for any reason you choose not to breastfeed, do remember that such a decision can be difficult to reverse.
