Baby food industry lobbies WHO on breast feeding advice.

Abstract:

:In the existing WHO guidelines, complementary feeding at 4-6 months is advocated. However, many nutrition specialists believe that these guidelines lead to complementary foods being offered from the age of 3 months, or even earlier, subsequently suggesting that the WHO should change its recommendations to about 6 months. To this effect, the International Association of Infant Food Manufacturers lobbied the WHO to delay any change to its recommendations on the optimal length of exclusive breast-feeding. Their message states that any action dealing with Infant and Young Child Nutrition should be delayed until the World Health Assembly 2002. Supporting facts to justify the message argue the importance of an international study on infant growth being carried out by the WHO, which should be finished by 2002. Nevertheless, several nutrition specialists believe that the scientific evidence to support a change in the WHO policy already exists and that such a study was not set up to determine the optimal length of exclusive breast-feeding.
