Breast milk is best for your baby

Breast milk is best for babies. The World Health Organisation (WHO) and Health Promotion Board (HPB) recommend exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. At around six months of age (but not before 4 months), infants should receive nutritionally adequate and age-appropriate complementary foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.

Abbott Singapore fully recognises breast milk’s primacy, value and superiority and supports exclusive breastfeeding as recommended by the WHO.

The HPB recommends that infants start on age-appropriate complementary foods at around 6 months, whilst continuing breastfeeding for up to 2 years or beyond to meet their evolving nutritional requirements. If no longer breastfeeding, toddlers can switch to full cream milk after 12 months. This should be complemented by a good variety of solid foods from the four main food groups (fruits, vegetables, grains, meat and alternatives).

pizza

Makes: 4 Servings

Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 bottle / 1 cup PediaSure Liquid (vanilla flavor)
  • 8 large eggs
  • 2 medium white potatoes, thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion (¼ cup) chopped
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ½ cup mixed ham and pepperoni, diced
  • ½ green pepper, sliced
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup tomato-based pizza sauce
  • ½ cup part-skim mozzarella cheese, grated

Directions:

  1. In a 10-inch skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Place potatoes and onions in skillet, cover and cook approximately 10 minutes, until potatoes are tender but still firm. Add ham and pepperoni, green pepper and mushrooms to skillet and cook 1-2 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, whisk eggs and PediaSure (vanilla) together.
  3. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Cook over low to medium heat until eggs are almost set but slightly moist on the surface, approximately 10 minutes. To speed up cooking, lift the edges to allow uncooked egg mixture to run to the bottom of the pan.
  4. Pour tomato sauce on top and sprinkle with cheese. Cover until cheese is melted.
  5. Alternatively, if skillet is heatproof, place under broiler for 1-2 minutes until cheese melts. Cut into “pizza slices” and serve!
