Healthy milk sugars for your baby


About the research

Not all mothers can breastfeed, which is a pity, because breast milk contains important molecules for the baby. But what if we add these molecules to powdered milk? That is what Anke Goormans (Ghent University) is working on to help mothers and their babies.
