At Bellamy’s we continually review our products to ensure that they reflect industry best practice and expert nutritional advice. As a result, we are pleased to announce that we have launched a new formula and toddler milk drink range, inclusive of our Step 1 Organic Infant Formula, Step 2 Follow-on Formula and Step 3 Organic Toddler Milk Drink.
As with all of the products in our range, our new formulations have been created to the highest safety, quality and nutritional standards, and now combines certified organic with scientific research. This has ensured that the new formulations offer not only an improved nutritional profile but also an improved taste and creamier consistency, now supported by 2 x organic certification credentials – ACO & NASAA.
You may notice that the new formulations will look slightly different to the old formula when dry such as the colour intensity, simply because the new recipes have a higher content of organic whole milk powder.
Our Organic Infant Formula and Organic Follow-On Formula offers a new and improved recipe with the addition of DHA, ARA and GOS.
Bellamy’s Organic Infant Formula is nutritionally complete and carefully crafted to provide key ingredients which support the growth and development of babies, from birth through to 6 months of age.
Bellamy’s Organic Follow-on Formula is nutritionally balanced and carefully crafted with key ingredients that complement the nutritional and developmental needs of growing babies from 6 months through to 12 months of age.
Our Organic Toddler Milk Drink offers a new and improved recipe, now containing DHA. Designed to complement the nutritional needs of toddlers, from 12 months of age, our new and improved Organic Toddler Milk Drink is an alternative to cow’s milk providing between 20% and 50% of the recommended dietary intake of 16 essential vitamins and minerals including:
While most babies and toddlers would be expected to experience a smooth transition between the old and new formulations, it’s important to remember that every child reacts differently when changing formulas. Because of the addition of new ingredients to our formula, your baby or toddler may initially experience some digestive changes. Whilst this is completely normal when transitioning to a new food or formula, we recommend that you transition slowly from one formula to the other at around 75% original formula with the addition of 25% new formula and increase the new formula over the course of 1-2 weeks. For a bottle using 4 scoops of formula, this would equate to 3 scoops of original formula and 1 scoop of the new formula. Always ensure that both formulas have the same scoop to water ratio. If you are worried about any persistent symptoms, please seek professional medical advice.
To assist with this transition, we will continue to sell our original formulations via our offline retailers (for a limited time).
We are excited to announce our new packaging will start to appear on shelf from October 2019. This transition to new packaging will occur over a period of time. During this time there will be a mix of current and new packaging on shelf.
