Breast milk is best

This is because breast milk:

  • is the perfect food for your baby
  • contains all the nutrients your baby needs
  • changes with your baby’s needs
  • helps protect your baby against infection
  • is free, safe, environmentally friendly and ready to use.

Research shows that breast-fed babies are more accepting of new foods than babies who are formula-fed. This is because breast milk gets its flavours from the mother’s diet.
