World Breastfeeding Week 2018 1st - 7th August

With World Breastfeeding Week happening from tomorrow, it's something we feel strongly about so we thought we would let you know a little more...

This year's WBW theme is Breastfeeding: Foundation of Life. In a world filled with inequality, crises and poverty, breastfeeding is the foundation of lifelong good health for babies and mothers.

Objectives of #WBW2018 are to...

  • Inform - Inform people about the links between good nutrition, food security, poverty reduction and breastfeeding.
  • Anchor - breastfeeding as the foundation of life.
  • Engage - with individuals and organisations for greater impact.
  • Galvanise - Action to advance breastfeeding as a part of good nutrition, food security and poverty reduction.

In return, this should help...

  • Prevent malnutrition in all its form
  • Ensuring food security, even in times of crises
  • Breaking the cycle of poverty
