Recently a two-solar-mass neutron star was observed. This puts new constraints on effective models at zero temperature and high chemical potential. In our approach we include mesonic degrees of freedom as well as nucleons in the framework of the Functional Renormalization Group. In this way, fluctuations beyond the mean-field approximation are taken into account.
