This year’s theme is "Breastfeeding: A Winning Goal for Life", which asserts the importance of increasing and sustaining the protection, promotion and support of breastfeeding. Breastfeeding is the optimal way to feed infants and the health benefits can be found in both mother and child throughout their lives. This theme celebrates the team effort needed to help mothers achieve their breastfeeding goals by making breastfeeding easier.
