Abstract

The survey is the first-of-its-kind after there is a proposed amendment to the existing IMS Act in 2017 based on Toxics Link’s report. The proposed amendment has broadened the purview of the feeding bottles and related products meant for the children. However the proposed regulation is yet to be enforced. In this context the survey has reiterated that there is a large scale confusion prevalent among the consumers to differentiate between the use of baby feeding bottles and sippy cups which is jeopardizing the health of the children. The survey also inferred that most of the consumers were of the view that the sippy cups and other related products need to be regulated considering children’s health.
