This slogan is very popular. It is true and it will remain true until the science haven’t invented an exact replica of the milk from mother’s mammary gland:
BREASTMILK STILL BEST FOR YOUR BABY UP TO TWO YEARS OF AGE.
All the doctors and medical associations agree to this slogan. Even the commercial infant formulas have this slogan boldly imprinted on their label.
