PEPTAMEN JUNIOR® is a brand you can feel good about. PEPTAMEN JUNIOR® is complete nutrition in a tube-feeding formula made for children with digestive impairment. Studies of children with gastrointestinal conditions have shown improved feeding tolerance with PEPTAMEN JUNIOR® (a formula with broken down protein, also known as a peptide-based formula) compared to formulas with intact protein1-2. PEPTAMEN JUNIOR® is often recommended for children age 1-13 years old who cannot tolerate formulas with intact protein, also known as standard formulas.
