The Infant and Pediatric Nutrition Association of the Philippines commits to be a key contributor in promoting the health and well-being of infants and young children.
The Infant and Pediatric Nutrition Association of the Philippines (IPNAP) is composed of industry leaders in infant and child nutrition, whose members include Abbott, Alaska Milk, Mead Johnson, Nestle and Wyeth.
The association was formed in 2008 to establish the industry’s collective approach to improving nutrition and supporting the goals and principles of the World Health Organization’s International Code of Marketing of Breast-milk Substitutes.
These goals and principles drive our commitment to improving the health and nutrition of infants and young children, promoting responsible business practices and ethics among our members, and advocating for the highest standards of safety and quality for infant and pediatric food products.
IPNAP believes that breastmilk is best for infants, and that promoting breastfeeding coupled with evidence-based information on optimal and appropriate complementary feeding practices will drastically improve infant and young child nutrition by enabling mothers to make an educated choice on nutritious feeding methods and products for their children. As such, IPNAP aims to play a constructive role through meaningful partnerships with other stakeholders in the areas of research, information and education, policy and legislation, and Corporate Social Responsibility.
