The modern infant formula has been evolved over many generations and major changes have taken place in the U.K. even in the last ten years to produce formulae which are predominantly of the low solute type. Modifications of scoop design and method of reconstitution, together with formulae changes, appear to have reduced considerably the problems associated with old type cows' whole milk formulae. From examination of nutritional guidelines and legislation available worldwide for infant formula, it is proposed that modifications of these guidelines are required especially with those proposed by Codex Alimentarius. Although it would seem sensible that mature breast milk analysis be used as a model for infant formula such a route may not give any improvement in the nutritional quality of milks currently available. Indeed perfect imitation of breast milk by artificial means is most unlikely. Possible areas for future research are briefly discussed.
