Exclusively breastfed babies and young children in New Zealand should be on a Vitamin D supplement, say health experts.
Q: I am so excited to hold our little babe Jason in my arms at last! I know that breastfeeding is best and our midwife has been fantastic…she has taught me all about breastfeeding. I am a bit worried though that I might find it hard to choose the right foods to eat and I am stressing about successfully feeding our wee babe. Is there anything available that can help with breastfeeding?
A: Puria® Mother’s Nutritional Supplement drink ideal for busy mums, particularly pregnant and breastfeeding mothers who need to ensure they are getting enough nutrition for their needs at this stage of their lives. It contains folic acid, iron, vitamin D and iodine as well as all the goodness of dairy, without the lactose. This means that it delivers the benefits of calcium and protein present in dairy to women who are lactose intolerant.
Easy to drink, and unlike most pregnancy and breastfeeding supplements, it tastes delicious in a Crème Brulee flavour.
Puria® Mother’s Nutritional Supplement comes ready to drink in a handy 250mL screw-top bottle, and is available in 4’s, and in a 24 bottle carton.
