Infant Feeding team show support at Breastfeeding Friendly scheme launch

AnniesThe Manchester Breastfeeding Friendly scheme was launched on Friday by Jennie McAlpine at her restaurant Annie's in Manchester, supported by members of our Infant Feeding team. The restaurant now displays a breastfeeding friendly Manchester sticker, which reassures mums they are welcome to come and feed their babies at the restaurant.

The scheme is free to join and businesses don't need to make any alterations to their venues - they simply display the new breastfeeding badge in the window to show their support.

Toni Lowe, Infant Feeding Advisor/Junior Sister on NICU, along with Coordinators/Midwives Kathy Henshall and Natalie Jones are part of the Manchester Infant Feeding Group which consists of members of Manchester Council and other infant feeding leads from the Greater Manchester region. Infant Feeding Lead for Children's Community Services Justine Baines is also a member of the group.

The purpose of the group is to improve - through optimal feeding - the nutritional status, health and development of infants and young children in Manchester.
