Infant formula is specially formulated in accordance with Codex Alimentarius international food standards and other global, regional and national authoritative bodies, to satisfy the necessary nutritional requirements of an infant.
Infant formula means a breast-milk substitute specially manufactured to satisfy, by itself, the nutritional requirements of infants during the first months of life up to the introduction of appropriate complementary feeding.
No other product may be marketed or otherwise represented as suitable for satisfying by itself the nutritional requirements of normal healthy infants during the first months of life.
The term infant means a person not more than 12 months of age.
Infant formula is recognised by the World Health Organization and other governing bodies as the safest, most nutritious and only recommended feeding option when breastfeeding is not possible.
