Healthy nutrition education

The people belonging to poor and uneducated families have a false perception that children grow naturally and the physical and mental development of the child will automatically happen as their age increases. In order to eradicate such misunderstanding, parents are educated about the importance of the period till a child grows 6 year old. For this, parents are communicated in the form of sending messages.
The pregnant women as well as the lactating mothers are educated about diet, pre delivery, only breastfeeding for the first six months, child’s vaccination as well as taking care of the children when they get diarrhoea.
