"The BBF process has been very useful for reviewing the Scottish Government's breastfeeding programme and policies.

"The high BBF Index score confirms that we are getting most things right but there is always room for improvement and we will focus our efforts on driving this forward.

"We would like to thank the expert group and Kent and Yale Universities for their input."
