Infant growth monitoring has been publicly promoted on postage stamps for many years although infrequently. Some of the earliest stamps are from the French Colonies, and are illustrated by the Dahomey airmail stamp from 1942 as part of the Colonial Child Welfare Fund omnibus issue. The same stamp design was shared by seven of the French colonies at that time including the Ivory Coast, Mauritania, and Senegal. Growth charts appeared on the 1986 India stamp commemorating the 40th anniversary of UNICEF and the 10 cent stamp from St Vincent in 1987 for the Child Health Campaign.
