When researching different formula brands, I came across a statistic that I was a little surprised by. Only 30% of mom's will buy a store-brand product for their children.Can you believe that?
DID YOU KNOW? All infant formulas that are made in the United States must meet FDA requirements for safety, nutrition and quality. They must also provide complete nutrition for growing babies. This means that store brand formulas are a nutritional equivalent to similar national brands but cost half the price. These savings can add up to $600, per year!
Perrigo Nutritionals produces quality store brand infant formulas that are avilable at retailers such as; Walmart - Parents Choice, Target - Up & Up, Kroger - Comforts and Sames Club - Simply Right. They adhere to the highest of standards so you can feel good about meeting your child's needs while saving money. Don't take my word for it, click here to learn more.
Recently, I was given the opportunity to review a few different products from Perrigo Nutritionals. I was sent a package that included two Perrigo Nutritionals store brand infant formulas, an 8 ounce bottle, a fleece baby blanket and a baby bib.
After spending two months with my girls on formula, one thing I have learned is that not all formulas are the same. In the instance that there are many different varieties of each formula. However, there is always a store brand alternative and I have found is that every one works just about the same as the name brand equivalent. One example, my daughter, A, has a very hard time with a certain brand of formula. It makes her projectile vomit all over the place. I tried the store brand alternative and the same thing happens. Fortunately for me (and my daughter), we have found an amazing formula that both my daughters do amazingly well on and the store brand works just as great for our girls. I will say, if they're equivalent, why would I want to pay double the price for the same exact product?
Next time you're looking into formulas, or any product, check out the store brand and save some money while you're at it.
