Infant Feeding Center


in the USSR, a public establishment that prepares food mixtures for healthy infants on mixed and bottle diets, for children receiving food supplements, and for sick children under three years of age.

Infant feeding centers occupy separate quarters or the ground floors of residential buildings. They are also established at polyclinic complexes. A pediatrician prescribes a diet and recommends a feeding schedule. The center prepares the food carefully, following the prescription, the rules of the technological process involved, and sanitary requirements. Large infant feeding centers have distribution points where formula is supplied to children from the surrounding areas.
