I endorse the proposal by PAHO/WHO and HKI. The modifications suggested will allow for developing indicators that reflect changes in dietary patterns with considerable impact on children's nutrition and health. Due to the rapid increase in the prevalence of overweight/obesity prevalence in children, and associated NCDs, observed worldwide, adding a measure of consumption of energy-dense snacks and sugar-sweetened drinks is a key step to provide a more comprehensive information on diet.
Monitoring of the Code's violations will be instrumental in development of policies to protect breastfeeding with the goal to increase exclusive breastfeeding rates, which have been persistently low in many countries.
