Strengthening Private Sector Accountability and Engagement to Improve the Diets of Infants and Young Children

Session Date: April 22, 2021

Session Description: For infants and young children, high-quality diets serve as the foundation for growth, physical and mental development, and protection from disease. Commercially produced complementary foods are widely available in many low- and middle-income countries. However, few meet the nutrition requirements of young children and concerns remain about their nutritional quality marketing, labelling and safety. This session shares experiences from various approaches, including research, advocacy, public-private engagement, and establishment of accountability mechanisms, as the basis for discussion on how to support and encourage companies to produce and sell better complementary foods to promote good nutrition for infants and young children.
