The ministry of health is aiming to boost the promotion of exclusive breastfeeding.
The ministry is hoping that come 2016 more mothers adopt the practise that according to the health officials, can affect the lives of children into their adulthood.
Chief nutritionist Lisa Hunt Mitchell says there is a direct link between non communicable diseases including type 2 diabetes and the absence of exclusive breastfeeding practices from birth to six months. The ministry of health brought in the expertise of the Caribbean public health agency to brief senior staff on the ‘baby friendly initiative’.
