Neocate Junior

The unique Amino Acid formula (AAF) for the unique little ones living with persistent Cow's Milk Allergy (CMA) and complex conditions.

Every child is unique, but what they all have in common is that their nutritional needs change over 1 year of age 1-3, and children with persistent CMA or complex conditions are no different. Dietetic expertise is essential to ensure that they have all the nutrients that a growing child needs to flourish. 

Neocate Junior is a unique AAF that:

  • Completely meets the changing nutritional needs of children over the age of 1 up until 10 years*4
  • Has a nutritional profile* shown to improve micronutrient status both orally and enterally5
  • Is suitable for children with persistent CMA and complex conditions aged 1-10 years
  • Is a single solution for oral or tube feeding and can be used as a sole source of nutrition from 1-10 years or a supplement from 1 year+
  • Is enjoyed by children, proven with an excellent compliance rate**6

A formula that children enjoy can aid compliance, which in turn may reduce repeat hospital visits, wastage and healthcare costs.10,11  

A well-tolerated formula can help reduce vomiting and malabsorption. When more of the prescribed volume is delivered, nutritional goals are more likely to be met.12
