This document was written by Kathryn Dewey based on the conclusions of an informal meeting on feeding of non - breastfed children, convened by WHO’s Departments for Child and Adolescent Health and Development (CAH) and Nutrition for Health and Development (NHD) in Geneva, 8 - 10 March 2004. Kathryn Dewey and Roberta Cohen prepared the background paper for the meeting. Staff in WHO/CAH commissioned the preparation of this document and provided technical oversight. Participants in the informal meeting reviewed and commented on various draft versions.
