Commercial foods for infants and young children in the WHO European Region (2019)

A study of the availability, composition and marketing of baby foods in four European countries

In order to help Member States understand what commercial foods for infants and young children are currently on the market, and to support implementation of the Guidance on ending inappropriate promotion of foods for infants and young children at the European level, the WHO Regional Office for Europe developed a methodology for identifying commercial baby foods available in retail settings and collecting data on their nutritional content, as well as various aspects of their packaging, labelling and promotion. This publication describes the findings from a study conducted in four countries of the WHO European region based on this methodology.
