Vitamins and Minerals
Amounts of B vitamins have been increased for cofactor production. An increased level of choline, an essential nutrient important for brain development and the normal functioning of cells1-2, is provided. Calcium, iron, zinc, manganese, and copper levels are higher in order to help meet the needs for these minerals when low-protein solid foods are introduced.
