Vegan Infant Formula
Despite the best efforts of dietician Sandra Hood and The Vegan Society who have been talking to Cow & Gate, SMA and The Department of Health, there currently is no vegan infant formula on sale since Heinz discontinued their Nurture Soya last month. Other soya formulas such as Cow & Gate’s Infasoy and SMA’s Wysoy contain vitamin D taken from sheep’s wool (lanolin). To find out more, or ask these companies to produce a formula suitable for vegan babies' please phone:
