* According to the source, these figures are for children under five months old.
In India, there is a practice of feeding a baby with some food before the initiation of breastfeeding which is a pre-lacteal feed. The type of pre-lacteal feeds depends on the culture. It may include ghee, honey, sugar, sugar juice, cow/goat milk etc. All pre-lacteal feeds are mainly provided for non- nutritional reasons such as clearing the throat/bowel or thinking that the mother’s milk is insufficient or too heavy for the new born to digest. Pre-lacteal feeds have lesser nutrients and immunological values and often likely to introduce contaminants.
