Health care professionals and their patients trust us to provide cutting-edge nutrition products that meet changing nutrition needs. And we deliver on their expectations—providing a vast array of nutritional and therapeutic products that help babies and children grow, work to keep bodies strong, and support the unique needs of patients with chronic illnesses.
Our comprehensive line of products addresses many different nutritional needs. From premature infants who have missed crucial in utero development and require particular attention, to term newborns or babies having special needs, Abbott Nutrition strives to ensure all infants receive optimal nutrition. Abbott Nutrition is the provider of Similac® Mom, the first and only nutritional beverage for pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers.
Abbott Nutrition has over 80 years of experience in feeding babies around the world and has conducted clinical trials involving a large number of babies world-wide.
Abbott Nutrition continues to drive research in infant nutrition and works to bring innovation to infant formula. In keeping with our commitment to supply the most advanced infant nutritional products on the market, in 2012 Abbott Nutrition Canada launched its new Similac® Advance® term infant formula, the only formula in Canada with galactooligosaccharides and lutein, two ingredients that can be found in breast milk. Abbott Nutrition understands that early nutrition is a key factor in the survival of preterm infants and that each preterm baby has individual needs that vary over time after birth.
Abbott Nutrition has supported the growth of toddlers and children for over 20 years with its PediaSure® line of products. PediaSure Complete® Grow & GainTM is the #1 Pediatrician Recommended Brand.
To help address hospital malnutrition, Abbott Nutrition provides sponsorship to the Canadian Malnutrition Task Force supporting their work to improve clinical nutrition practice in hospitals.
