Technical Report

Recognizing the importance of protecting, maintaining, and potentially improving the diets of children under the age of two, there has been an increased focus on supporting infant and young child feeding in emergency contexts in recent years. However, the focus of activities has typically been on promoting exclusive breastfeeding with relatively less emphasis on complementary feeding practices.  This report aims to identify the tools that are available to support complementary feeding in emergencies and assess where there are gaps and additional resources needed.
