In China, only 52.5% of infant and young child’s diets meet the minimum requirements of the World Health Organization for food diversity.
Some outstanding problems, such as low breastfeeding rates, inappropriate infant and young child feeding practices, and low nutritional quality, have also led to an increasing problem of overweight and obesity among infants and young children.
On October 26th, BY-HEALTH and UNICEF China jointly launched a partnership to promote infants’ nutrition in the early 1000 days of life in Zhuhai. BY-HEALTH will donate more than RMB 10 million yuan (RMB $1.49 million) to support UNICEF’s project on strengthening infant and young child feeding practices and the social policy environment in China from 2020 to 2022.
