Information Note: Classification of follow-up formulas as breast-milk substitutes

This Information Note describes the rationale for the WHO’s interpretation of the definition of breastmilk substitutes and its guidance to clarify that breast-milk substitutes “should be understood to include any milks (or products that could be used to replace milk, such as fortified soy milk), in either liquid or powdered form, that are specifically marketed for feeding infants and young children up to the age of 3 years (including follow-up formula andgrowing-up milks).”
