Designed to be More Like Breast Milk

Member's Mark Advantage® 1 Infant Formula offers complete nutrition and is designed to be more like mother's milk. That's why we formulated our milk-based infant formula with GROWTH, a blend of nutrients found in mother's milk that support brain and eye development:

  • DHA, an omega-3 fatty acid for mental and visual development
  • Lutein, an antioxidant found in the eye
  • Vitamin E for cellular development

Advantage® 1 is also formulated with prebiotics for your baby's immune system and digestive health. This infant formula also contains the antioxidant Vitamins A, C, E, as well as Zinc for immune support.
