— The importance of the theme of baby food it’s hard to overstate, as it is obvious that we are talking about the health and safety of children, — said Anna Kuznetsova. — The number of complaints about the quality of food is increasing. Only recently there have been reports of poisoning in Chelyabinsk, Magadan, Tula, Abakan. In some regions, the cost of food is not indexed for 2015 for nearly three years. It is a concern that the supplied product is clearly insufficient for a complete and balanced diet of the child. In addition, there is a dietary table for children with rare, including chronic diseases. I believe it is necessary to improve regional legislation regulating the provision of children’s nutrition in preschool and educational institutions.
