The Swedish Way – increasing awareness of individualised nutrition through target fortification for preterm babies.

Miris is proud to launch its latest campaign titled The Swedish Way. The campaign serves to raise international awareness of target fortification as a means to optimize the nutrition of human milk for premature babies.

More preterm babies grow up to become healthy kids in Sweden than in most other countries. Individualized nutrition through target fortification is one of the specific tasks being performed on a nationwide basis since the 90s, to ensure better recovery, growth and cognitive outcome.

In its Swedish home market, Miris’ procedure has emerged as a de-facto standard for target fortification, and is currently used by 94% of the country’s neonatal care units.

Increase awareness, support researchers and enable doctors to individualise milk fortification is at the core of Miris. We emphasise on sharing our expertise and educate our customers how to prepare and analyse human milk. It is therefore with great pride we have established The Swedish Way. Make sure to visit to get information on why target fortification is important, how it is done and how you can implement.

Target fortification: Because every child is unique.

Scientists in most countries agree that the mother’s own milk is the best nutrient source for preterm babies. However, breast milk changes in composition over the course of lactation and varies within and between feeds. The right nutritional composition is essential for each unique preterm baby. In Sweden, we take this into account and use target fortification to avoid over- or undernutrition, thereby reducing the risk of related negative effects.
