Breastmilk is nature's perfect baby food. But if you can’t breastfeed, or if you’ve chosen not to, formula milk is the next best thing. Scientists and medical experts have spent years developing high-quality formula milks that will provide your baby with the nutrition she needs. According to the  Straits Times , all infant formula sold in Singapore must comply with the requirements of the Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority's Sale of Food Act. This includes the minimum and maximum nutrient composition in an infant formula. Most of the standard milk formulas are developed to be closest to breast milk.

Each follicular unit has one to four hair follicles.
