Abstract

Good nutrition, in the early months of life, is more usually determined by feeding practices-whether the right food is given at the right time and in the right way and by the right frequency. Breast feeding ensures this start because of its many unique advantages for the child's physical, mental and psychological development. Breastmilk is child's first immunization. Breast feeding should be continued for one year or as long as possible.
