BREASTMILK - A LIFE-SAVING GIFT

A NATURAL GIFT

nature at its best

The birth of a new baby is a magic moment. It happens millions of times every year, thousands of times every hour. Yet, the magic and the awe for this miracle of a new life remain each time. Nature has provided well and ensured that mothers can feed their newborn with their own milk – a natural, life-giving gift. No substitute reaches the quality, completeness and benefits of breastmilk.

That is why, the Family Larsson-Rosenquist Foundation dedicates all its efforts, its passion and its wholehearted long-term commitment to promoting and supporting breastfeeding and breastmilk.
