Breastmilk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.​

What is ENP?: Nutrition Tips for Kids

What is ENP? Learn the importance of healthy food habits and eating tips for kids via the ENP research. Read more!

What is ENP?

Early Life Nutritional programming: The ENP research on early childhood nutrition examines the impact of nutrition of mother and child for the future health of the child.

This shows that the complementary diet could make a decisive influence for the future health of your child. Take this opportunity to shape the future health of your child

Exploiting the opportunities

The food choices you make for the consumption of your child could still alter the health of your child from the introduction of the complementary feeding. The metabolism, brain and your child’s immune system now undergoes tremendous maturation for milestones like smiling, grasping and crawling. Your baby still requires a lot of nutrients as his growth spurts are nutrient dependent now. Especially since the iron supply in your child is almost depleted at about 6 months. Provide porridge with fruit, vegetables and grains for essential vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

Our Tip:

Make your child’s meals as varied as possible as the diversity in complementary food not only promotes healthy development but also shapes the taste and eating habits of your child.

We can help you to place the foundation of a right diet for the future health of your child with our diverse information and services. You can implement the findings of the Early Life Nutritional programming research on early childhood nutrition in the everyday life of your baby easily. 

Take this opportunity to give your baby the most valuable time for a happy life with a good health and lots of love.

The time frame for the first 1000 days

You can develop a central building block of health- the metabolic process, the brain and immune system. A positive influence with proper nutrition for the diet of your child within the unique time frame of the first 1000 days (time of pregnancy to toddler years) reduces the later risk of diseases.

Seize the opportunity and take the future health of your child into your own hands!
