We depend on food systems to deliver safe, nutritious diets in countries and communities around the world. But before crop yields, government policy, supply chains, product placement, and so much more influence our diets, breastfeeding makes an indelible impact on our health and development. And much like the food we grow or buy, breastfeeding isn’t just about delivering nutrition; it also provides comfort, builds bonds, and sets the stage for our future health.
