Infant formula, follow-on formula and other baby foods are products designed to satisfy the specific nutritional requirements of healthy infants (children under the age of 12 months) and young children (between one and three years).
Infant formula and follow-on formula are specifically covered by Commission Directive 2006/141/EC. The Directive lays down the requirements for the composition and labeling of infant formula and follow-on formula.
