We provide regularly updated independent information on infant milks for sale in the UK and challenge information given by formula companies about their products which is not in line with policy and evidence from accepted expert committees. We believe that companies that market infant milks and foods for young children should not provide information on breastfeeding or child nutrition to health professionals and should work within the full WHO Code of marketing of breast milk substitutes.
