Indicators for Assessing Infant and Young Child Feeding Practices

Conclusions of a consensus meeting held 6-8 November 2007 in Washington D.C., USA

It has been 16 years since the publication of the document Indicators for assessing breastfeeding practices, which provided a set of indicators that could be used to assess infant feeding within and across countries and evaluate the progress of breastfeeding promotion efforts.

Since 1991, there have been important developments in infant and young child feeding recommendations and scientific knowledge about what constitutes optimal breastfeeding and complementary feeding practices, which have led to the need for revision and expansion of the set of indicators initially recommended.
