ISSN

Complementary foods that are introduced in a timely manner, and are nutritionally adequate, safe, and appropriately fed – along with continued breastfeeding – are critical to the nutrition, health and development of infants and young children between 6–24 months of age. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines “timely” as at six months of age, “adequate” as meeting the child’s nutrient requirements, “safe” as hygienically prepared, stored and fed, and “appropriately fed” as fed responsively or fed in a manner that responds to a child’s signals of hunger and satiety.1 As noted in the article by Thurnham in this issue, complementary foods should not displace breast milk, but rather, should complement the child’s diet by providing nutrients that are limited in breast milk after six months of age.
