MAYO ZIMBABWE

OPTIMAL INFANT AND YOUNG CHILD NUTRITION AWARENESS CAMPAIGN 


INFANT FEEDING ISSUES

• There was resistance to exclusive breastfeeding as they felt only breast milk is not enough especially for big baby boys .
• Myths and misconceptions like the one that a pregnant woman cannot breastfeed are deeply rooted but they were demystified.
• Most children were getting a monotonous diet.

ACHIEVEMENTS 

• The forums have reached more than 2000 people.
• The project has managed to reach to some of people in very remote areas who have no or little information.
• The community has already started accepting the initiative.
