About Us


Following the announcement of a snap general election, to be held on 8th June, the House of Commons will be formally dissolved on Wednesday 3rd May. At that point, there will be no MPs and all current APPG activity will be suspended. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support of the APPG and we hope that the APPG can be reconvened in a new Parliament.

Welcome to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Infant Feeding and Inequalities. This group was set up by MPs in the House of Commons with interests in breastfeeding and infant nutrition.
