Recommendations

ATNF recommends that, alongside other stakeholders such as government, health professionals and non-profit organizations, each of the BMS manufacturers should intensify its efforts to support breastfeeding rates by curtailing BMS marketing that does not align to the recommendations of The Code, to contribute to improving the health of mothers and babies.

Nestlé, RB/MJN and Abbott should each unilaterally adopt a BMS marketing policy that aligns fully with the wording of The Code and subsequent relevant WHA resolutions. Ideally, each would apply its policy immediately to all BMS products sold in the United States. Alternatively, each company could implement The Code’s recommendations incrementally, starting, for example, by applying its policies to all formula and complementary food products intended for infants up to six months.
