Our Commitment to Responsible Infant Formula Marketing

Abbott believes that proper nutrition is critical for building lifelong health—especially for babies at a time when their minds, bodies and immunities are developing rapidly. We aim to make every stage of life a healthy one—and we share this goal with many others around the world. That’s why our nutrition business is dedicated to developing science-based nutrition products for people of all ages.


We agree with the World Health Organization that breastfeeding provides the best nutrition for babies, and we support its goal to increase breastfeeding. We also recognize that for infants who aren’t breastfed—for medical reasons or otherwise—infant formula is the only appropriate, safe alternative to meet babies’ nutritional needs. We respect and support every parent’s right to make decisions on the most appropriate way to feed their babies and believe we play an important role in ensuring they have the most accurate information about their babies’ nutrition and understand the options available so they may make choices that are appropriate for them.
