Supporting

Premature Infants Nutrition

with Specialised Care

Provide your premature baby with the nutritional care it needs, by delivering essential nutrients and supporting the overall growth and weight of the baby with Neokare’s 100% breast milk-derived fortifier products.

Why is Optimal Nutrition Vital for Premature Infants’ Growth and Development?

Since premature babies are born before 28-37 weeks of gestation, they have additional nutritional requirements to balance their diet and support their overall growth and development. While Human milk is the ideal nutrition for preterm infants, evidence suggests that preterm neonates require supplementation for optimal growth. Providing them with breast milk fortifiers for preemies, and pasteurized milk products supports their optimal nutrition, as these products offer essential nutrients crucial for their development.
