Do you assume that infant formula is strictly-regulated by the US government? And, since formula is often manufactured by pharmaceutical companies, do you presume that it is subject to the same tough scrutiny by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as medications? Are you comfortable giving your baby formula based on these assumptions? Before you offer artificial infant formula to your baby, make sure you understand what’s fact, and what’s fiction about how formula is regulated.
Join Marie as her special guest, author and expert, Dr. George Kent, for a discussion of the FDA’s regulation of formula. Find out what control there is–and isn’t–over formula’s nutritional content, health claims, safety, and economic value. As the decision-maker for your child, you owe it to yourself and to your child to be certain you understand some of the risks associated with infant formula.
