The best possible start

Many of you involved in food and health work and early years will have contributed experience and opinions to the Scottish Government’s development of a maternal and infant nutrition strategy. Following a draft ‘Maternal and Infant Nutrition Framework’ circulated in October 2010, this framework was launched on Tuesday 18 January 2011 in Edinburgh.

At the same event other tools for the delivery of maternal and child health including a Breastfeeding national marketing campaign (January 2011) and a range of other relevant guidance documents were launched.

CFHS will be following the progress of how the framework will be implemented and what this means for the involvement of the community food sector.
