The Infant Feeding Joint Working Group, which is a collaboration of Health Canada, Dietitians of Canada, Breastfeeding Committee for Canada and Canadian Paediatric Society, has issued a list of recommendations for Canadian babies.
As per the recommendations, babies should only be fed with breast milk until they turn six months. Some changes have also been introduced in the previous suggestions. Last time, it was said that only cereal should be given to a child, who is above six months.
However, now the group has changed its recommendations a bit. They were of the view that babies should be allowed to have meat, eggs, tofu and legumes as well. It was said so, as the mentioned food products were found to be healthy for children.
“While meat and fish are traditional first foods for some Aboriginal groups, the common practice in North America has been to introduce infant cereal, vegetables, and fruit”, read the statement being released by them.
The group has also suggested that children should be fed such food items, which are rich in iron. They said that there is no harm in providing such food for two or more times. It seems that Canadian food guidelines have been changing as per the needs of the time.
