Infant Feeding Program

Provision of infant formula and Likuni phala to children as replacement feeding. The purpose is to provide safe and reliable feeding to infants and young children up to 2 years of age to reduce their risk of becoming undernourished. Infants from 0– 12 months are given 800gm of infant formula for a period of 7days and those from 13 – 24 month are given 400gm of the formula weekly. Health and Nutrition education sessions are conducted in all infant feeding centers that have been established targeting care givers and guardians of the children.
