Aptamil 1 First Infant Milk powder infant formula provides 0.8 mg of iron/100 kcal (0.53 mg/100 ml).
This level of iron is appropriate for most babies and is consistent with European recommendations (EFSA, 2014; ESPGHAN CON 2014). For infants born prematurely, or with a low birthweight, with low iron levels at birth, or infants who are at risk for becoming iron deficient due to illness, additional iron may be necessary.
Consult your child’s pediatrician for more information.
