Sri Lanka was selected as the best breast feeding country according to a survey by South Asia International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN).

A ceremony to mark this was held recently where breast feeding mothers were felicitated at the Sri Lanka Freedom Party Headquarters, T B Jayah Mawatha, Colombo 10.

The ceremony was organized by the Sri Lanka Freedom Party Women's Organization.

Health Minister Maithripala Sirisena was the Chief Guest. Hundred breast feeding mothers were felicitated and 100 bank accounts were opened for their babies. IBFAN Sri Lanka co-ordinator Amara K Peeris made the welcome speech.

Minister Sirisena said from 2011, a separate well-equipped room will be allocated for breast feeding mothers in Government and private institutions.

Ministers Pavithra Wanniarachchi, A H M Fowzie and Sumeda J Jayasena, Southern Province Governor Kumari Balasuriya and Ranaviru Seva Adikariya Chairperson Padma Wettewa were present.
