Abstract

The WHO Regional Office for Europe and the Federation of International Societies for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (FISPGHAN) held a joint workshop, "Moving Complementary Feeding Forward" at the 6th World Congress Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition in 2021. Here we summarize workshop presentations and discussions. The workshop covered health implications of complementary feeding (CF) including allergies, challenges to meet dietary needs during the CF period, quality of commercial complementary foods (CFD) and respective marketing practices, national CF guidelines in Europe, a nutrient profiling system for CFD, and global policy perspectives on the standards and regulation of marketing for CFD. Adequate CF practices are of critical importance for short and long-term child health, prevention of nutrient deficiencies, normal growth and development, and reducing the risk of allergies. The workshop identified the need to improve feeding practices, harmonize evidence-based information and develop guidance jointly with various stakeholders, improve the composition and marketing practices of commercial CFD and their transparent labelling based on nutrient profiling. Renewed efforts for collaboration between scientists, public health experts, pediatric associations, national governments and the WHO are necessary for advancing progress.
