Breast feeding

In our Primary Health Centres, we encourage and preach exclusive breastfeeding for the first six
months of life. Breast milk is the ideal food for infants. It is safe, clean and contains antibodies which
help protect against many common childhood illnesses. Breastfeeding is one of the most effective
ways to ensure child health and survival. Breastfed children perform better on intelligence tests, are
less likely to be overweight or obese and less prone to diabetes later in life. Women who breastfeed
also have a reduced risk of breast and ovarian cancers.
