In order to protect breastfeeding
it is important that all those who offer advice to families have accurate and unbiased information about infant feeding, including clear information about infant formula, follow on formula and other infants milks marketed in the early years. First Steps Nutrition Trust provides a regularly updated guide for health professionals which summarises the composition of infant milks available in the UK. We also provide information on specialised milks, fortified milks for older children and on making up milks safely. We also support health professionals to work within the WHO Code of marketing of breastmilk substitutes.
