  1. Answer is A.. They always say “breast is best” but not all mommies can breastfeed for oodles of reasons medical and personal as well so infant formula is always evolving and they keep trying to make it closer and closer to breast milk.

  2. Yikes! Is this a quiz you’re taking?? I would go with A. You can always fortify iron, folic acid and vitamin D. But you can’t replace natural immune support.

  3. a b and c. vit d is supposed to be gotten from the sun but because of the state of the ozone that cannot be done safely.
