Neocate Junior, a unique AAF tailored for children with Cow's Milk Allergy over one year of age.
The demographics of food allergy appear to be changing, and many children now have food allergies which persist during childhood.1,2 These children will continue to need nutritional support and advice beyond the age of 1 year. It is important that their nutritional intake develops with the corresponding changes in their requirements as they grow.
Neocate Junior is uniquely tailored to meet a child’s changing dietary requirements as they grow older; 350ml of Neocate Junior meets approximately 50% of the RNIs for calcium, vitamin D and iodine for children from 1-10 years. Allergic children are at increased risk of nutritional deficiencies including calcium, vitamin D and iodine3,4.

The persistence of Cow’s Milk Allergy
Historically, it was assumed that CMA was a transient allergy that most children would grow out of around 1-2 years of age. However Allergic symptoms can persist beyond one year for a significant number of children. Studies of children with IgE mediated Cow's Milk Allergy show that only 19-57% of children will outgrow their allergy by the ages of 4-5 years.1,2,6
Data suggests it is also more likely to persist in those children with asthma, allergic rhinitis and those with more severe reactions.7,8,9
Important notice: Neocate Junior is a Food for Special Medical Purposes for the dietary management of Cow’s Milk Allergy, Multiple Food Protein Allergies and other conditions requiring an amino acid-based formula, and must be used under medical supervision.
