English: Web Page


These principles are the result of a background document that examined the feasibility of designing adequate diets using locally available foods. This publication lists the nine guiding principles, with the scientific rationale for each, and gives examples of diets from different parts of the world that can meet energy and nutrient needs of infants and young children after 6 months of age who are not breast-fed. It includes a discussion of key issues related to early breast-feeding cessation for infants and young children of HIV-positive mothers.
