Iron-fortified Infant Formulas That Do Not Require Medical
recommend that the school, center, or day care home offer the type of
formula that the infantís health care provider has suggested to the
infantís parent (or guardian). If the school or child care facility
offers a different type of formula, the infantís parent may
decline the offered formula, and supply another type.
FNS provides this list as a guide of
products that do not require medical statements when offered to infants
in the child nutrition programs. Although this list is not meant to be
all-inclusive, it does include most of the brands of iron-fortified
infant formula that are currently available to consumers. It does not
represent our endorsement of these companies or their products.
We update this list as we become aware of
newer information. Be sure to check with your State agency if you are
not sure whether a type of infant formula requires a medical statement
to be served in the infant meal pattern.
