what you missed at the re­cent Healthy Breast­fed Baby Con­test.

Re­turn­ing for the 23rd year, the Healthy Breast­fed Baby Con­test by KK Women’s and Chil­dren’s Hos­pi­tal (KKH) was held on Aug 5 at United Square.

The long-stand­ing an­nual event aims to raise aware­ness and sup­port breast­feed­ing, and is or­gan­ised in con­junc­tion with World Breast­feed­ing Week.

Some 60 ba­bies were short­listed for the fi­nals. Pro­fes­sor Alex Sia, the hos­pi­tal’s chief ex­ec­u­tive of­fi­cer, and Cyn­thia Pang, as­sis­tant direc­tor of Nurs­ing, Lac­ta­tion Ser­vices, pre­sented the top prizes for the KKH Healthy Breast­fed Baby and the Most Pop­u­lar Baby cat­e­gories.

Win­ners walked home with at­trac­tive prizes spon­sored by Pi­geon, Great East­ern, Mononos, Mother­care and

Young Par­ents. Fi­nal­ists also re­ceived ham­pers from Ce­taphil, Great East­ern and Sweet­est Mo­ments.

Fam­i­lies and shop­pers took part in fun stage ac­tiv­i­ties and were en­ter­tained by a ven­tril­o­quist show, as well.

Ear­lier in the day, nurs­ing mums came to­gether for a mass latch-on. They also learnt how to keep fit and healthy from a KKH phys­io­ther­a­pist.
