Please specifically include breastfeeding in the new Millennium Development Goals.
Breastfeeding is free, it requires no sterilisation of equipment which can be a problem in areas which lack access to clean water, it is better for babies and reduces infant mortality rates and better for mothers.
The International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitues should be fully implemented.
This thematic discussion was led by FAO and WFP in collaboration with “The World We Want”.
The consultation was facilitated by the Global Forum on Food Security and Nutrition (FSN Forum)
