The lack of knowledge about the adequate practices and attitudes related to the nutrition of infants on the part of the professionals in charge of their care is one of the problems faced by public health in our country. The historical characterization of the infant's nutrition in Cuba, specially that connected with exclusive breast-feeding and the use of milks for infants, as well as the consequences for health, are summarized.
