Baby Milk Action

Email update : 12 July 2012

The Ulverston Breastfeeding Festival: 11 - 17 August 2012

Baby Milk Action will be taking part in the informative and friendly Ulverston Breastfeeding Festival again this year.

Why not combine a family holiday or day out with attending some or all of the events during the week?

Ulverston in Cumbria is a great base for visiting the Lake District. Fell Foot Country Park, at the southern end of Lake Windermere, is less than 10 miles away.

For full details of events, visit the Breastfeeding Festival website at:


Mike Brady, Baby Milk Action's Campaigns and Networking Coordinator, will be running an interactive session on Thursday 16 August from 10:00 to 12:00.

This will look at two aspects of Baby Milk Action's work: monitoring the baby food companies in the UK and promoting the Nestlé boycott.
