Community-based infant and young child feeding promotion!

Community-based infant and young child feeding promotion

counselling, and education has been identified as one of the key strategies for fighting child malnutrition. 

Providing mothers and caregivers with skills to breast feed their babies exclusively with breast milk for six months and to continue with appropriate complimentary feeding thereafter is a sustainable strategy for child growth. UNICEF and Kajuru Local Government Area of Kaduna are promoting this strategy in 203 communities. To demonstrate ownership, the local government has released the sum of five hundred thousand naira for this project. A worthy example for other local government areas in Nigeria!
