Human milk oligosaccharides (HMO’s) are prebiotic fibres found in significant amounts in human breast milk. HMOs play many important roles in infant health including supporting microbiome, gut and immune development. Paula’s presentation will provide an overview of the latest scientific understanding for the role of HMOs in term and preterm infant outcomes.
