Recent Press Release
Beware of the risk of homemade infant formula
Proper nutrition during the first few years of life is critical for long-term health and wellbeing.
By the end of November 2014, there were 1,182 babies born in the Tri-Counties.
The Leeds, Grenville and Lanark District Health Unit recognizes a growing trend in the use
and promotion of homemade infant formula.
Influenza has arrived in the Leeds, Grenville and Lanark Counties Health Unit Area
Across the country, influenza activity is increasing sharply. We have had our first individual diagnosed with influenza in Lanark, Leeds and Grenville with more individual diagnosed in our surrounding area. The flu season usually lasts 6 to 8 weeks.
In Ontario and across both Canada and the States, the most common type of influenza A circulating is H3N2
which, in the past, can cause very serious illness among seniors, young children, and people with chronic
health problems. The flu vaccine does include a component against H3N2.
