Nestle NAN Optipro 

Nestle NAN Optipro (Optimised Protein Blend) has been quite aggressive in their marketing recently. You may have seen bus ads that state that their formula is backed by “The Science of Mother+”.

We don’t know about that, but Optipro is pretty popular among Singaporean mothers as it is a gentle protein blend that is easy on the stomach. The range also includes a hypoallergenic (HA) version, which has partially broken down protein. We hear that it tastes more bitter that the usual types, though!

Their formula milk, while not the most expensive, is on the higher end. Nestle also makes a budget brand called Lactogen which is more affordable.
