First Food Deserts

Have you heard of Food Deserts?

Food deserts are defined geographical areas in industrialized countries that lack retail stores with healthy, nutritious options.

I just heard about the concept of "First Food" Deserts!

The First Food Friendly project has published a new infographic explaining the concept of first food deserts.

The project defines first food deserts primarily by assessing the access to and scope of meaningful and consistent breastfeeding support. "First Food Deserts: Rethinking Food Access for Infants"a post published in the blog The Broad Side, highlights the impact of first food deserts and how the project will address them.
