If your child has symptoms after eating certain types of food, they may have a food allergy.
But what is a food allergy, and what are common triggers, signs and symptoms?
Here, you will find information on the most prevalent food allergies in infants and children, their causes, their symptoms, and how to alleviate them through dietary management.
Around the world, food allergy prevalence in children is increasing, and cow milk allergy may last longer into childhood than previously thought. Children with food allergies are at increased nutritional risk and may have potential growth problems later on.
Neocate is here to help meet their nutritional requirements.
Neocate has been created for kids with food allergies, at all stages of their growth and evolving needs. Their tastes and preferences will probably change over time, so age-appropriate solutions are essential to support adequate nutrition.
Neocate and the Neocate Junior range provide a large variety of flavours and packaging, to keep things exciting as your child grows older.
Neocate® is a family of hypoallergenic, amino acid-based specialized formulas for use under medical supervision and is indicated for cow milk allergy, multiple food allergies and related GI and allergic conditions. Talk to your healthcare provider about product recommendations.
Neocate Nutra is suitable for use in children and infants older than 6 months of age (not suitable as sole source of nutrition). Neocate Nutra is not intended for bottle or tube feeding.
Dear valued customer,
Nutricia North America Inc. (Nutricia), as part of the Danone global business, is working closely with Health Canada to help ensure infants with a medical need for a hypoallergenic formula have access to one during the hypoallergenic infant formula shortage crisis.
Under the Health Canada Interim Policy (Interim policy on the importation and sale of infant formulas, human milk fortifiers (HMF) and metabolic products for inborn errors of metabolism to mitigate shortages. – Canada.ca), Nutricia in Canada has worked to import two whey-based extensively hydrolyzed formulas (eHFs): Aptamil® Pepti 1, from the UK and Aptamil®ProExpert Pepti from Brazil. These formulas are brought to you to help alleviate the shortage of hypoallergenic formula. Aptamil Pepti 1 and Aptamil ProExpert Pepti should be used under medical supervision.
Aptamil Pepti 1 and Aptamil ProExpert Pepti formulas are nutritionally complete, hypoallergenic and contain galacto- and fructo- oligosaccharides. Both formulas are suitable for the dietary management of cow milk allergy (CMA) in infants 0 to 12 months. They can be used as sole source nutrition from birth to 6 months and as part of a mixed diet in infants over the age of 6 months.
Aptamil Pepti 1 and Aptamil ProExpert Pepti are made available across the country to help support the access to hypoallergenic products.
Please note that you might have access to one or both products at a time depending on your region and on the availability of the products, but be assured that both products are very similar and can be used interchangeably. If you have concerns, please discuss with your healthcare professional.
