Raising Awareness of the 380,000 Premature Births a Year, Enfamil Launches the First Premature Advertising Campaign of Football’s Biggest Game – Because Every Kickoff Should Be Great, Even an Early One
As the playoffs get underway, the brand’s “Early Kickoff” campaign features stories from NICU babies who were due the day of the Big Game.
PARSIPPANY, N.J., January 18, 2022 – A month before the big game, Enfamil, a leading nutrition brand at Reckitt, is kicking off a digital advertising campaign to raise awareness of premature birth and inspire hope for parents. Launching earlier than other ad spots of its kind, Enfamil’s campaign features preemie babies and parents, including pro football offensive tackle, Mekhi Becton, who was born 5 weeks early and grew up to be 6’7” and 350 pounds.
Ten percent of births in the U.S. are premature – where families may spend their first days or weeks in Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs), which can turn an exciting moment for parents into an uncertain one. That’s why Enfamil works directly with NICUs around the country to provide support and help them thrive. Each year, Enfamil contributes millions of dollars and employees volunteer countless hours across multiple partners to help support premature birth programs and provides financial and informational support to parents after their baby leaves the NICU.
"We believe that babies are the most important people in the world and that we play a crucial role in helping them thrive with world class nutrition to help fuel their wonder."Amardeep Kahlon General Manger for US Nutrition at Reckitt
“In those important first few weeks, Enfamil is there for them in NICUs with everything premature babies need to get the best start in life. Through this “Early Kickoff” campaign, we hope to bring attention to the issues facing premature babies and how, with the right care and nutrition, they can thrive.”
With more than 100 years of nutrition experience and industry leading science to create products for parents and babies, Enfamil continues its mission to support baby’s development – especially those who need a bit of extra help.
