A diversity in infant feeding patterns exists throughout the Middle East. Wide variations in cultures, languages, ethnic background, religions and social practices should be taken into consideration, when designing programs to promote appropriate feeding practices. Strategies applied in one community might not be appropriate for another. In order to be effective, these should be incorporated into overall primary health care programs.
