  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a

recent study showed that while the rates of breastfeeding exceeded the Healthy People 2010 goal of 75%, the rates of breastfeeding at 6 months of age did not achieve the target goal of 50%. This shows a need to “continue breastfeeding promotion and intervention activities that target diverse populations.”
