Public Health Organizations
Hospitals, clinics, WIC offices, extension and public health centers can help to support LINI through infant feeding education campaigns, individual counseling, and outreach. Identifying and sharing the best practices and essential interventions can help to provide a framework for addressing the nutritional status, growth, development, and health profile of Latino infants.
Here’s how organizations can participate in the LINI movement:
- Create culturally and linguistically public health campaigns to support breastfeeding.
- Develop print ads that promote local farmers markets and fruits and vegetables stands in the community.
- Offer community resources and services bilingually with hours to accommodate dual working families.
- Primary healthcare providers can monitor weight, eating, and activity trends from infancy through adulthood.
