Webinar discusses breastfeeding benefits

Tuesday, 11 August 2020 | PNS | BHUBANESWAR

Under the leadership of Dr Aiswarya Biswal, to celebrate the Breastfeeding Week, a webinar was organised here to promote breastfeeding and increase awareness and its immense benefits, especially to the mother and baby during the week.

The eminent professionals and pioneers of nutrition from both India and the UK who joined as keynote speakers included Basant Kar, Harshita Pandey, Dr Pranab Mahapatra, Prof Lora Mishra, Diana Sahu, Dr Prakash Dey, Dr Sahadev Swain and Ranjita Sethi.

They laid elaborate emphasis on numerous breastfeeding models for Aatmanirbhar Poshan in India (self reliant nutrition).

India needs to scale up and replicate home growing indigenous models like Surguja (district of Chhattisgarh) for a larger impact. The harmful effects of feeding of formula milk and ultra processed food were discussed.

Awareness and promotion of breast feeding can amplify in achieving the nutritional targets for the baby and the mother. India can show the world as an exemplary country on addressing malnutrition and achieving breast feeding targets as enshrined in Poshan Abhiyaan and United Nations Sustainable Developmental Goal targets, the panelists opined.
