Breastmilk is the best for babies. The World Health Organisation recommends exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months of life. Unnecessary introduction of bottle feeding or other food and drinks will have a negative impact on breastfeeding. After six months of age, infants should receive age-appropriate foods while breastfeeding continues for up to two years of age or beyond. Consult your doctor before deciding to use infant formula or if you have difficulty breastfeeding.​

Tips to a healthy diet: Colourful Fruits and Vegetables

It will be ideal if your child gets 5 children palm-sized servings of fruits and vegetables a day (250-300 grams). Vary and combine as many varieties for your child’s consumption. You could also replace one serving with pure fruit and vegetable juice or smoothie (with no added sugar, preservatives, colourings and additives). However, it is not recommended to give fruits and vegetables from a can as the Vitamin content is low.

Vitamin C is important for the immune defence. It is found in nearly all animal and plant foods, especially fresh fruits and vegetables. Vitamin C helps to give a healthy gum and aids wound healing.
