Abstract: The WHO Working Group on Complementary Feeding and the Control of Iron Deficiency was invited to present an overview of current infant and young child feeding practices in the WHO European Region at a Joint UNICEF/WHO Consultation on Iron Deficiency Anaemia. A number of nutritional recommendations from the former Soviet era, which differ from international standards, were identified. Poor complementary feeding practices help to explain the poor iron status of infants and young children in the WHO European Region, particularly in the countries of the former Soviet Union and the central Asian republics. The Working Group outlined guidelines for the revision and updating of recommendations on complementary feeding, to facilitate the establishment of good complementary feeding practices in the Region. If these recommendations are embraced, they should have a significant positive impact on the general nutrition and iron status of young children
