Arms Assigned Interventions
Active Comparator: NUTRAMIGEN®

Subjects are orally fed ad libitum (following guidelines printed on the labels).

Subjects will receive the Nutramigen® formula for a 4 week period

Then depending of the result of the challenge test we have the following possibilities:

  • If the test is positive: The children continue the formula Nutramigen®
  • If the test is negative: A Follow up formula is given

    • (Nan pro2) if child > 6 months
    • (Nan pro1) if child < 6 months
Other: Infant Formula Feeding

Assigned formula (Althera® or Nutramigen®) for a 4 weeks period.

  • If the challenge is positive: The children continue the assigned formula
  • If the challenge is negative: A Follow up formula is given

    • (Nan pro2) if child > 6 months
    • (Nan pro1) if child < 6 months
Other Name: Infant formula feeding
