Despite a wide range of interventions, the effective promotion of breastfeeding continues to be challenging, particularly among women from communities where infants are usually formula milk fed. It has been suggested that infant feeding education in primary schools might enable positive breastfeeding attitudes to be adopted that could influence choices in adulthood. However, little is known about children’s awareness or receptiveness to this subject, and there is a lack of evidence on which to base potential educational interventions.Although breastfeeding research in primary schools may perhaps appear unnecessary or premature, a case for study in this field can be demonstrated.
