Fewer children? Let’s grow them healthy and strong! What do we feed them?


Nestlé, the world’s largest food and beverage company, supports exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of a child’s life and for as long as possible. Nestlé is standing by the Romanian mothers with young children over 1 year old, offering them a new generation of milk, a revolutionary innovation – NAN 3 SUPREMEpro® – 6 HMO, now with 6 oligosaccharides structurally identical to those in mother’s milk.

The National Institute of Statistics announced that, in the first semester of 2023, just over 73,000 children were born in Romania, the lowest number of newborns in the 145-year history of statistical measurements in our country. The few children born in our country need a diet that provides them with the nutrients necessary for harmonious development.

Nestlé launches in Romania NAN® 3 SUPREMEpro®, Nestlé’s most advanced milk formula for young children, now with a new 6 HMO complex – oligosaccharides structurally identical to those in breast milk and active B.infantis and B.lactis cultures.

NAN® 3 SUPREMEpro® benefits from cutting-edge innovation based on over 155 years of scientific research expertise in infant and young child nutrition, offering a unique, patented combination of 6 HMO – oligosaccharides structurally identical to those found in milk maternal and active cultures B.infantis and B.lactis.

With this launch, the Nestlé company once again marks its concern to continue in the field of HMO – oligosaccharides structurally identical to those in breast milk – and thus, after numerous scientific research, brings to the Romanian market the most advanced recipes of milk formulas from the Nestlé portfolio.

The quality of Nestlé products is supported by over 155 years of research in the field of nutrition for infants and young children.

Nestlé promotes scientific progress through its research centre, Nestlé Research & Development, the largest profile organization in the food industry, where advanced research by Nestlé and world-renowned experts takes place, supporting the global scientific community and supporting health industry professionals, in their clinical practice.

Today, HMO – oligosaccharides structurally identical to those in breast milk, can be found in NAN® 3 SUPREMEpro® with 6 HMO, as well as in NAN® 3 OPTIpro® with 5 HMO.

The advanced formula of NAN® 3 SUPREMEpro® is created by combining our patented 6-HMO complex, oligosaccharides structurally identical to those found in breast milk, with a unique blend of high-quality partially hydrolysed proteins and active cultures, scientifically proven to support the healthy growth of children from a young age, for their amazing development”, explained Mihaela Busu, Business Executive Officer, Nestlé Nutrition Southeast Europe.

About oligosaccharides in breast milk

Oligosaccharides in breast milk are essential components for the health of infants and young children, and new research indicates that they play an important role in the development of the digestive system, by favouring the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestine1 2 and the benefits brought to the metabolism of the little ones3. Over 200 distinct oligosaccharides have been identified in breast milk, with a diverse matrix present in lactating mothers. Oligosaccharides in breast milk contribute to the improvement of cognitive functions at the level of cognitive flexibility, memory and language, fundamental processes for brain development4 5 6 7 8.

At the same time, the oligosaccharides in breast milk help the bone system by reducing bone cortical porosity by up to 50% and increasing mineralization by 8.4%, and the immune system benefits from the reduced risk of infections, by reducing the load of pathogens9.

Nestlé’s history of research and innovation

Nestlé has a long history of innovation in developing nutritional solutions for infants and young children. Since 2017, Nestlé has made significant progress in incorporating oligosaccharides structurally identical to breast milk into infant formulas, as a result of ongoing research into breast milk and its long-term importance, in partnership with key renowned institutions at the international. The first published clinical study10 conducted on the formula containing a complex of 5 oligosaccharides structurally identical to those in breast milk demonstrated that it is safe and supports age-appropriate growth, like that of breastfed children.

The Nestlé portfolio for children’s nutrition consists of more than 65 products dedicated to a market segment that includes more than half a million young consumers.

Nestlé believes that breastfeeding is the ideal start in terms of nutrition for babies and fully supports the World Health Organization’s recommendation of exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life and its continuation for as long as possible.
