Recommendations for a National Infant Feeding Policy (2000)

Thursday, 02 March 2000

During the first year of life, infants triple their birth-weight and double their surface area, making this a period of very rapid growth which is never repeated during the life cycle.

This  report  on  infant  feeding  provides  information  on  nutrition  and  nutrition-related  topics  for children during the first year of life. It has been developed in response to increasing awareness of the importance of infant nutrition and in the knowledge that no comprehensive source of information on infant feeding was available in Ireland.
