“The policy, conducted by us as the Ministry of Health, consists of dominance of breast milk in children nutrition”, said Deputy Minister of Health of the Republic of Azerbaijan Elsevar Agayev while commenting on the sale of infant foods to parents in maternity wards, ONA reports.
He noted that some companies inappropriately promote foods for infants. Deputy Minister stated that is why doctors should pay attention to nutrition of newly-born children.
“Breastfeeding of children is always promoted. Besides the Ministry of Health, community should also take part in the issue.”
