Similac Indication

Similac High Energy is a Food for Special Medical Purposes and should be used under medical supervision. It is available on prescription for babies with, or at risk of, faltering growth, which can result from an inadequate energy intake, or an inability to meet increased nutritional needs. It can also be useful for babies who are fluid restricted.

If you think that your baby may benefit from a high energy infant formula, or for any other matters relating to feeding your baby, we would recommend that you seek advice from your healthcare professional e.g. GP, dietitian or health visitor.
