Specialised Nutrition Europe (SNE) and European Dairy Association (EDA) are deeply concerned that the European Commission’s report on Young-Child Formula fails to recognise that specific legislative provisions are needed for specialist formulae for young children aged 1-3 years, and urge the European Parliament and Council to demand action.

“The failure to regulate Young-Child Formula with specific rules at EU level may have unintended negative public health consequences, as these products will no longer be differentiated from other products for general consumers which are not necessarily designed to meet the specific nutritional needs of young children” stated Roger Clarke, President of SNE.

In light of the Commission’s Better Regulation strategy – which values extensive stakeholder consultation to ensure the development of EU rules when required – SNE and EDA deeply regret that the Commission has not recommended specific rules for Young-Child Formula, and that the Commission has thus failed to take into account the views of numerous stakeholders who requested this action including national governments, NGOs and industry.
