Feeding your baby and child

Appropriate and healthy feeding of your baby during the first year of life is extremely important because more growth occurs during this period than at any other time in your child’s life.

The Homerton Health Visiting Service is working towards becoming Baby Friendly accredited. Baby Friendly is a UNICEF initiative that seeks to better support families with feeding and developing close, loving relationships, ensuring that all babies get the best possible start in life.
