A good friend of mine posted this small commentary on Facebook. Though it's just a few sentences, it's far to important a question to be lost or brushed aside.
Will your baby's formula be deficient in a few years?
Formula companies periodically revamp the ingredients in their powder to make it more nutritional. They add another vitamin, or ingredient which improves their current artificial powder. Formula companies go to great lengths to advertise and celebrate their new and improved powder. Why? Because they realized that their “old” powder was deficient and needed to be fixed. In a few years time, I foresee formula companies improving the current powder as they realize that today's new and improved powder is missing a vital ingredient. Consider this: will you feed your newborn, infant, or toddler a powder that will be considered deficient in a few years?
