Why is it important?

This study provides insights into MNP and BigMo acceptability and compliance by mothers and their promotion by CHWs, which may be useful in improving multiple micronutrient powder program and complementary feeding projects and programs in similar settings.


Deeply stirred and inspired by the study children, I hope this article would serve as a basis for the review of the implementation guidelines of multiple micronutrient powder within the context of infant and young child feeding program in many developing countries.
