We help foster your baby’s learning ability.

Clinical studies have demonstrated that Enfamil Infant formula fosters learning ability now—and into the preschool and kindergarten years. Babies fed Enfamil that has the omega-3 fatty acid DHA showed improvements in a measure of executive function, which includes mental flexibility, working memory, self-regulation, and impulse control, and a 16% improvement in a measure of vocabulary at 5 years of age.*†‡
