Abstract

The objectives of the research were as follows: • To assess whether infants under 6 months are being fed follow-on formula and if so, the reasons why • To assess whether the new controls upon the ways in which follow-on formula are presented and advertised2 have been effective in making it clear to all those likely to be involved in child care, including parents, formal and informal carers, health professionals and parents-to-be, that advertisements for follow-on formula relate to formula only for older babies (6 months plus), and are not perceived as, or confused with, infant formula advertising, which is prohibited and • Based upon this evidence, to draw conclusions about what changes, if any, could be made to the presentation and advertising of infant / follow-on formula, for consideration by the review panel
