Human milk oligosaccharides (HMOs) are the third largest component of breast milk and are now recognised as components that play an important role in the maturation of the immune system of babies. Scientists are discovering the many benefits of HMOs, and over the last few years, HMOs have become one of the trending topics of scientific discussion. As the world leader in infant nutrition and a pioneer in research on HMOs, Nestlé has created this digital academy which shares evidence-based information from more than a decade of research in this area. The digital academy also provides a source of learning and support to all healthcare professionals. The HMO Academy leverages state-of-the-art interactive technologies to provide you with the most exciting and user-friendly learning experience.
