~August 1-7 is World Breastfeeding Week! Spread the awareness!
The World Health Organisation (WHO) and the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) jointly developed and launched the Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding (GS) in 2002 reaffirming the four Innocenti targets set in 1995, and setting additional targets. The GS has identified a clear need for optimal infant feeding practices in reducing malnutrition as well as poverty. It is based on a human rights approach and calls for the development of comprehensive national policies on infant and young child feeding. It provides guidance on how to protect, promote and support exclusive breastfeeding for first six months, and continued breastfeeding for two years or beyond together with adequate, appropriate and indigenous complementary feeding starting from the age of six months.
HAPPY WORLD BREASTFEEDING WEEK.
~Happy world #breastfeeding week to all breastfeeding Moms and Dads, breastmilk is an irreplaceable gift a mother can give to her baby!
