Quality of nutrition determines health, growth and development of all infant and is a key priority in the effort to improve survival, growth, and development of children with equity. However, we can still able to find many infant and young child feeding (IYCF) at many African community level to be far from optimal.


How can we ensure access to good counseling services in the poorest and the most vulnerable communities with limited access to health care, and a potentially economical alternative to improve infant feeding—compared to relying on overburdened health workers? Is there any safer Breastfeeding Program that protects babies from HIV? How can we improve programs for nutrition counseling, soybean promotion, and micronutrient supplementation in African communities?



Join us as we explore the goals and purposes of infant nutrition education
