A working party set up by the Committee on Medical Aspects of Food Policy (COMA) Panel on Child Nutrition to review and advise on infant feeding published its report in October 19741. It contains factual information and recommendations which should be of interest and value to those responsible for the training of doctors, dietitians, nurses, midwives and health visitors as well as to food technologists and manufacturers of infant foods. It includes many references to research on infant feeding and tables giving the composition of the wide variety of ‘artificial’ milk feeds at present available compared with cows' and breast milk. It is hoped that the report will enable practical and consistent advice on infant feeding to be given to mothers.
