A Child should be exclusively given mothers milk for the first 6 months

Press Release

Breastfeeding has many health benefits for both the mother and infant. Breast milk contains all the nutrients an infant needs in the first six months of life. Medical Officer, Gandhinagar Hospital,  Dr Sonika Sharma discussed about malnutrition and how the initiation of early breastfeeding and exclusive breast feeding practices for six months influences child’s health and nutrition.

Trainer State Institute of Health and Family Welfare, Mr. Ranveer Singh shared his views on promotion and practices of breastfeeding and how it is helpful for Universal Health Coverage. He further elaborated that breastfeeding protects against diarrhoea and common childhood illnesses such as pneumonia, and may also have longer-term health benefits for the mother and child, such as reducing the risk of overweight and obesity in childhood and adolescence. Breastfeeding has also been associated with higher intelligence quotient (IQ) in children.

Action Against Hunger-India /Fight Hunger Foundation organized a seminar for the awareness of early initiation of breast feeding and exclusive breastfeeding practices as part of ‘Universal Health Coverage Day’ in partnership with IIHMR University in Jaipur today. Regional Advocacy Officer, Kuldeep Singh of AAH/FHF welcomed the guests and briefed them about the objectives of the workshop.
