Resource description

This scoping study aims to lay a foundation for the introduction and randomized trial of third-party quality certification of infant foods in Ghana. The products whose quality would be certified are the cereal-based complementary foods recommended for infants between 6 and 24 months of age, when healthy growth requires foods of exceptionally high nutrient density and digestibility. These specialized infant foods are needed from the time when the child’s needs outpace the nutrients available in breast milk, to the time when the child can digest sufficient quantities of more commonly-available foods.
