What can I do if I am having difficulty swallowing my NESTLÉ® MATERNA® tablets?

Hopefully one of the following will help you—you can try to:


  • Take your tablet with food.
  • Include your tablet in your bedtime routine.
  • Break it in half and consider taking at two different times in the same day (Make sure to have clean, dry hands and keep the remaining half of the pill out of reach of children).
  • Crush it and mix the powder into a drink.


Note: To help make things even easier on you, you can pick up a pill splitter or pill crusher at your local pharmacy. If you only need to cut your tablet, just make sure you do so along the bisecting line in the middle. Do your best to cut the tablet evenly, as sharp edges may be difficult to swallow.

I’m vegan, is MATERNA?

Materna contains animal derivatives. Please reach out to Nestlé Canada Consumer Care if you feel you require further clarification.

When should I start taking a prenatal multivitamin?

A woman should start taking a prenatal multivitamin containing folic acid at least 10 - 12 weeks prior to conception - when she is trying to conceive or planning a pregnancy.

How long should I take a prenatal multivitamin?

Experts recommend for a woman to continue taking a daily multivitamin containing 0.4 - 1.0 mg folic acid for 4 - 6 weeks postpartum or for as long as breastfeeding continues1.


1 Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada. J Obstet Gyneacol Can. 2015; 37(6):534-549.

What time of day should I take a prenatal multivitamin?

You can take a prenatal multivitamin at any time of day. But it’s ideal to take your multivitamin together with a meal because it not only helps the tablet to disintegrate, it also makes it easier for your body to absorb the vitamin’s nutrients. Taking a prenatal multivitamin at mealtime helps minimize the potential for stomach upset, as well (especially if you are sensitive to iron). You’ll also find it easier to incorporate your prenatal multivitamin into your daily routine if you take it at the same time every day.

What is folic acid?

Folic acid is a B vitamin essential for the healthy development of the fetus, brain, and skull during the early weeks of pregnancy.

What is the difference between folic acid and folate?

Folate and folic acid are B vitamins. Sometimes the terms are used interchangeably but there is the difference. Folate is the form which is naturally found in foods, and folic acid is the synthetic version used to fortify foods and is what’s used in prenatal multivitamins. Folic acid is a more active form of this essential nutrient, compared to its natural counterpart, folate.

Why should I take folic acid before I get pregnant?

Spina bifida and other neural tube defects (NTDs) occur between the third and fourth week of fetal development, a time when most women don't even know that they are pregnant. Because up to 50% of all pregnancies are unplanned, all women of childbearing age should take a multivitamin containing folic acid every day in order to help prevent NTDs. Be sure to take a multivitamin that also contains vitamin B12. Folic acid helps reduce the risk of birth defects by more than 70% if taken before pregnancy.

What is the recommended level of folic acid for pregnancy?

The recommended daily allowance (RDA) of folic acid during pregnancy is 0.6 mg. However, most prenatal multivitamins/mineral supplements will provide up to 1 mg of folic acid.


However, most prenatal multivitamins/mineral supplements will provide up to 1 mg of folic acid1.


The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada recommends that women, with no personal health risks for neural tube defects, take a multivitamin with 0.4 mg to 1.0 mg of folic acid throughout pregnancy2.


Health Canada. Prenatal Nutrition Guidelines for Health Professionals. 2009.  Page visited: August 28, 2017.
2 Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of Canada. J Obstet Gyneacol Can. 2015; 37(6):534-549.

Where can I get folic acid?

Folate (folic acid) can be found naturally in foods such as green leafy vegetables, red kidney beans, chicken liver and corn. However, most women find it difficult to get the recommended level of folate from food alone. For example, you would have to consume 2 cups of spinach each day to get enough folate to meet the daily requirements. Taking a prenatal multivitamin such as NESTLÉ MATERNA, which provides 0.6 mg of folic acid, helps provides assurance that you are getting the daily requirement. 

What are neural tube defects (NTDs), spina bifida and anencephaly?

Neural tube defects are birth defects that affect the brain (anencephaly) and/or spinal cord (spina bifida). NTDs occur when the tissues that form the brain and spinal cord fail to develop properly. These defects occur in the first 4 weeks of fetal development - usually before a woman even knows she's pregnant.

Can I add formula or breastmilk to GERBER® cereals?


Just remember that it’s important when you’re making baby cereal, to prepare as directed on the label.

NESTLÉ GERBER "Add Milk" cereal varieties allow you the flexibility to add breastmilk or the infant formula of your choice.


What’s not recommended?

We don’t recommend adding breastmilk or infant formula to NESTLÉ GERBER “Add Water” cereals as they already contain specially adapted milk and 14 essential nutrients. If you’ve accidentally prepared the “Add Water” cereal with breastmilk or infant formula, it won’t harm the baby if you feed them with it on occasion.


Important Note: Always discuss any feeding changes with your baby’s doctor.

Wait, is GERBER® Baby Cereal a meal supplement?

In a word, no…but  GERBER Baby Cereals are iron-fortified and definitely a complement to the other foods you are introducing to your baby at this stage.

In more words: NESTLÉ GERBER Baby Cereals are not designed to be used as a sole source of nutrition, nor are they meant to replace breast milk or infant formula.

How should I store my baby’s cereal?

Keep your baby cereals tightly sealed and in a clean, cool, dry place. Check packaging regularly for rips, tears, and signs of bugs. Be sure to discard the product once past its due date. Read Storing baby cereals: Freshness & Safety First! for more helpful tips.

I have been introducing solid foods to my baby and can’t find the Gerber purees I have been using to feed my baby. Can I use other flavours of purees? What should I do?

Yes! You can use another flavour of puree to feed your baby. All Gerber Purees are delicious, all nutritious, and organic purees and can be used interchangeably. The majority of our Gerber Purees are staged from 6 months+ and those flavours can be fed interchangeably within that stage. For Toddlers 12months+, you can feed any of our 6m+ purees, plus we have 3 additional flavours that can be used interchangeably:


Gerber Organic Banana, Mango, Quinoa, Avocado with Vanilla Puree


Gerber Organic Apple, Mango, Raspberry, Avocado with Oats Puree


Gerber Organic Mango, Peach, Carrot, Sweet Potato with Oats Puree

I have been introducing solid foods to my baby and can’t find the Gerber Cereals I have been using to feed my baby. Can I use other flavours of Cereals? What should I do?

Gerber cereals are specifically designed for your growing baby and we offer different varieties of cereal within each stage. While they are staged to progress gradually in flavour and texture, they can be used interchangeably within each stage.


It is important to note that the Canadian Pediatric Society states that when introducing foods that may contain common allergens, it’s best to offer no more than one new food a day. The reason for this recommendation is that it will make it easier to identify a food that may have caused a reaction. 


Common food allergens found in Gerber Baby Cereals are milk, wheat, oat, and barley. Always read the product label for our most up to date product information.
