Breastfeeding is one of the most under-leveraged strategies in improving children’s health and can have a marked impact on later health and disease risks. This is why FLRF has developed this new reference book.

Breastfeeding and Breast Milk – from Biochemistry to Impact explores the multifaceted, multidisciplinary and complex world of breastfeeding and breast milk. An evidence-based resource for decision-makers and practitioners, it presents a holistic overview of key topics regarding the influence of breastfeeding and breast milk on children’s health and development. Based on scientifically robust arguments, the international authors encourage governments to do more to increase breastfeeding rates by creating breastfeeding-friendly environments. They also suggest a shift of focus from isolated activities to collaborative efforts through multi-country, multi-stakeholder partnerships.
