Cornell Nutritional Expert, Vermont Baby Formula Company Urge Parents Not to Dilute Formula with Extra Water
Date:12/3/2008

GEORGIA, Vt., Dec. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to press reports of parents diluting baby formula in this difficult economy, a nutritional expert and a leading manufacturer of infant formula are urging parents to breastfeed or use formula responsibly by following the instructions on the can.

"It is critical that parents refrain from diluting baby formula with extra water during these tough economic times," said Barbara S. Levine, R.D., Ph.D., director of the first NIH-funded Nutrition Information Center at Weill Cornell Medical College. "If parents choose to formula feed, they must remember it is an infant's sole source of nutrition."

PBM Nutritionals, LLC, a supplier of store-brand infant formula found at Walmart, Sam's Club, Target, Kroger, Walgreens, and other leading retailers in the United States and throughout the world, recommend parents breastfeed or use formula responsibly.

"Breastfeeding is best for babies," said PBM CEO Paul B. Manning. "When it comes to using formula, parents should follow the directions on the label exactly to ensure that their babies get the nutrition they need for healthy growth and development. We are pleading with moms and dads to read and follow the instructions on their formulas of choice."

"If money is an issue, parents must understand that store brand infant formulas cost up to half the price of comparable national brands," added Levine. "And the FDA sets the nutritional and quality standards for all infant formulas, so store brand formulas have to meet the same strict guidelines as national brands."

PBM is a leading supplier of infant formula sold throughout the world; its commitment to research and development ensures that all of its formulas are safe, high quality, and offer the latest advances in nutrition.
