Abstract:
This article validates the adherence of infant food products marketed in India and
Malaysia to their national regulation and its implications on oral health of infants from
dental perspective. For the assessment purpose, Infant milk substitutes and infant
formulae that are marketed in both the countries were analyzed for: a) Nutrition Labeling
b) Health Claims c) Additional required labels. d) Special Instructions. A qualitative and
quantitative evaluation of 15 Indian and 19 Malaysian infant food products marketed
were evaluated using non-experimental cross-sectional descriptive design. It was found
that infant food products were considerably far in its proximity to the regulations of their
country and lacked vital instructions / labeling required to maintain Infant oral hygiene
and health. It was concluded that inspite of the timely amendments made in the
regulations for marketing infant formula foods, there was stretching of rules from the
manufacturing companies. Regulatory rigidity in marketing infant food products to
safeguard oral as well as general health of infants is required. Infant dental health and
hygiene was not given considerable importance by the governing bodies in both the
developing nation. This emphasizes dental professionals to create awareness and educate
the parents regarding Infant oral health.
