ENSA statement on the opinion issued by Anses in France on drinks of babies

The French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health Safety (Anses) has issued an opinion on the risk related to the use of drinks other than mother’s milk and the substitutes to mother’s milk in the feeding of babies from birth until 1 year.

The Anses study clearly states that none of the 211 drinks identified utilizes the name “infant formula” or “follow-on formula”. Anses only states that “some of these products are labelled suggesting a possible use in young children.”
