World Breastfeeding week 2018 (1/7 August)
|Post date||Tuesday, 31 July, 2018 - 16:01|
The Food Security Cluster supports the World Breastfeeding Week
In a world filled with inequality, crises and poverty, breastfeeding is the foundation of lifelong good health.
A sustainable and more equal world begins with efforts to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure prosperity for all. Malnutrition, food insecurity and poverty affect millions and stand in the way of sustainable development.
Breastfeeding is a universal solution that gives everyone a fair start in life and lays the foundation for good health and survival of children and women.
The Objectives of #WBW2018 are to:
INFORM people about the links between good nutrition, food security, poverty reduction and breastfeeding
breastfeeding as the foundation of life
with individuals and organisations for greater impact
action to advance breastfeeding as a part of good nutrition, food security and poverty reduction
We all have an important role to play in ensuring the growth, development and survival of children around the world.
