Welcome to Core Module 3 "Infant Formula Feeding"

Here you will find an overview of the module on "Infant Formula Feeding", its structure and units, learning aims and information on how you can receive your CME credits.


Not all infants are exclusively breastfed for the recommended 4-6 month period. In such cases, infant formula of high quality is considered the only suitable breast milk substitute. Having a broad understanding of infant formula feeding practices including standard guidelines, composition, correct preparation and potential associated risks will help to ensure that formula-fed infants thrive and have the best possible start in life. This module aims to provide an overview of infant formula and outline the most important aspects associated with infant formula feeding.

Structure, Content and Learning Aims of this Module

The module "Infant Formula Feeding" contains four separate units which can be worked through in your preferred order. For each unit, you will have the opportunity to request CME credits upon successful completion of a multiple choice test at the end.

How to best follow this module 

For your own coordination and scheduling: To go through this entire module which contains four units, you will need about 560 minutes (around 100-180 minutes for each unit). Downloading further literature or using our integrated links will take additional time.

Every unit consists of a self-assessment test at the beginning, different lessons and a CME test at the end. During the course of the module, the learner will benefit from a number of learning tools, including self-assessment tests, graphics, expert videos, a discussion forum and an online case-based training.

To make better use of the teaching material and consequently a better learning experience overall, we suggest that the learner first should go through the units, follow by the case-based training and only after that she or he should attempt the CME tests.
