Dear Ms. Palting,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives catalog and located Posters Promoting Healthy Nutrition for Women and Children, 1990 - 2006 and Health Campaign Posters and Public Service Advertisements, ca. 2004 - 2004 in the Records of the Food and Nutrition Service (Record Group 462) that include posters promoting breastfeeding. We also located the series Subject File Photographs, ca. 1961 - ca. 2002 in the Records of the Agency for International Development (Record Group 286) that includes a file unit titled Health - Breastfeeding. For more information about these non-digitized records, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Still Pictures (RDSS) at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition, we located the series Project Files Relating to the Innovative Materials for Population Action Project, 1985 - 1990 in Record Group 286 that include the file unit titled IMPACT - Breastfeeding Booklet.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDSS and RDT2. We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
Finally, we suggest that you review the Legislative History of Breastfeeding Promotion Requirements in WIC webpage by the Food and Nutrition Service of the U.S. Department of Agriculture that includes a timeline about legislative actions taken since 1972 that pertain to breastfeeding and the WIC (Women, Infants and Children) program.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
