3 The Global Strategy for Infant and Young Child Feeding(IYCF) Developed by WHO and UNICEF to revitalize world attention on the impact that feeding practices have on infants and young children.Malnutrition has been responsible, directly or indirectly, for over 50% of the 10.9 million deaths annually among children <5 years.Over two-thirds of these deaths occur in the first year of life
4 Major Causes of Death Among Children under five in developing countries, 2008 Deaths associatedWith malnutrition54%Source: The World Health Report 2008, WHO, Geneva.
5 Global situation (save the children-2012 report) 7.6 million children U5 yr die /year2.6 million (35%) ---- malnutrition---1/3rd (10%) of these deaths are due to micronutrient deficiencies170 million (27% of all children globally )--- stunted ( low Ht/age), million of total in Asia100 million --- under weight (Low wt/age)---19% of child death60 million ---wasted (low wt/ht)20 million/yr ---LBW (<2.5 kg)
6 The State of the World’s Children 2014 More than 150 million children in developing countries are malnourished.According to more recent estimates, IUGR, stunting and severe wasting are responsible for one third of under-5 mortality.

14 TEN STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL BREASTFEEDING The Baby-Friendly WayTEN STEPS TO SUCCESSFUL BREASTFEEDINGEvery facility providing maternity services and care for newborn infants should:1. Have a written breastfeeding policy that is routinely communicated to all health care staff.2. Train all health care staff in skills necessary to implement this policy.3. Inform all pregnant women about the benefits and management of breastfeeding.4. Help mothers initiate breastfeeding within an half hour of birth.5. Show mothers how to breastfeed, and how to maintain lactation even if they should be separated from their infants.6. Give newborn infants no food or drink other than breast milk unless medically indicated.7. Practise rooming in – allow mothers and infants to remain together – 24 hours a day.8. Encourage breastfeeding on demand.9. Give no artificial teats or pacifiers (also called dummies or soothers) to breastfeeding infants.10. Foster the establishment of breastfeeding support groups and refer mothers to them on discharge from the hospital or clinic.14
