Change The Labelling On Baby Foods To Reflect WHO Standards
Petition Background (Preamble):
Numerous studies demonstrate that babies who are given solids earlier are more prone to allergies, asthma, obesity and nutritional deficiencies. A number of companies that manufacture baby foods label their foods as being suitable for babies who are 4 months old although they are not.
This labelling is misleading and irresponsible. It encourages carers to start feeding their babies solids before it is appropriate to do so.
Labels that claim that foods are suitable from 4 months should no longer be permitted.
