Breastmilk is still best during emergencies!

Tuesday, November 12, 2013

I have been reading a lot of calls on social media site regarding donations, in kind or in cash. And everytime I read it, I can see that they included and written "powdered milk for infants". I would just like to remind of the governments law which is "The Milk Code", which prohibits the advertising and the promotion of formula milk.  

In as much as we would like to help, donating formula milk is not an answer. In a time when water is not available and sterilizing bottles is not feasible and breastmilk is the most nutritious food for infants, powdered milk should not be allowed in any food packs. 

I appeal to your hearts for donations for the victims of supertyphoon Yolanda but I would just like to remind you that breastmilk is the best for babies.

Let's continue to pray for all our brothers and sisters. 

Bangon Pinoy!
