Manipur tops in Breastfeeding, Infant & Young Child Feeding Practices

Manipur has topped the raknings in Breastfeeding and Infant and Young Child Feeding Practices in the country. Health and Family Welfare Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan released a report on Breastfeeding today in New Delhi. Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan and Bihar are at the bottom positions in the report card.

National capital Delhi is also among the worst-performing States. The Breastfeeding report card has been developed by devising a composite score based on three indicators namely early initiation of breastfeeding, exclusive breastfeeding for six months and complimentary feeding at 6-8 months of child's age.
 
Talking about the benefit of Breastfeeding, Dr Harsh Vardhan said, breastfeeding not only saves child from being malnourished but also saves the mother from breast cancer and ovarian cancer. 

Mr Harshvardhan also appealed influential personality on social media to spread the message of benefits of breastfeeding to the masses.
