WHO Recommendations

We support the global infant feeding recommendation of the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Arla Foods Ingredients’ affordable food commitments target primarily children and adolescent girls/women of reproductive age. When carrying out this work, we ensure that we are in line with the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) global infant feeding recommendation.

The recommendation highlights exclusive breastfeeding as the best nutrition for infants up to the age of six months. Breastfeeding should then continue up to the age of two years or beyond, supplemented by nutritionally adequate and safe complementary foods.
