Women say breast is best

Hundreds of women protested for proper child nutrition by taking part in a mass breastfeeding event in the Philippines.

World Breastfeeding Week put on the event called The Big Latch On in Manila on the weekend and over 300 women took part by nursing their babies for over a minute while being filmed by TV cameras.

Organisers offered support and guidance as well as nutritional information to mothers at the annual event, held on 1 August each year.

The event follows a number of controversies in the UK where women have been stopped from breastfeeding their babies in public.
