Wyeth Nutrition Celebrates 100 years of Advancing Nutrition in 2015

Prior to the turn of the twentieth century, women who could not breastfeed did not have nutritionally suitable alternatives for their infants. Dr. Henry John Gerstenberger, a dedicated pediatrician, identified the need for change and in 1915 he began a quest to develop a formula that could be easily prepared while fully meeting the nutritional needs of infants.

This quest kicked off the history of Wyeth Nutrition, and Dr. Gerstenberger’s visionary spirit lives on today. For 100 years, we’ve been at the forefront of innovation as modern infant formula has evolved. Our past is distinguished by scientific milestones in the advancement of nutrition for infants, children, and expecting mothers all over the world.


Wyeth Nutrition and Foundation for the National Institutes of Health recently entered into a landmark five-year partnership called the Baby Connectome Project (BCP), which aims to better understand how the brain develops from birth through early childhood and uncover contributing factors to healthy brain development.

The Wyeth Nutrition Science Center shares science-based information with healthcare providers to advance global nutrition science and enhance the nutrition of mothers and children while improving future health outcomes.
