Breastfeeding is important to the all-round development and well-being of every baby.
Evidence show that Malnutrition is a major cause of mortality in children under 5years old.
Every mother should eat a balanced diet in order to have necessary nutrients in her breast milk.
Maternal and child health must be a concern for all.
Encourage a mother to eat healthy and feed her baby healthy. Inadequate intake of food causes malnutrition in children which has an adverse effect on their future development.
Encourage nursing mothers to go for post natal-care and ensure that their baby takes all immunization dozes.
Mothers need to be better educated about feeding themselves and babies with adequate and nutritious foods.
A healthy mother, a healthy baby.
