Exclusive and adequate breastfeeding practice by Nigerian mothers will not only help in improving the mental capacity of babies when they grow up, it will also save the country at least N6.93 billion spent every year, Health Expert with Alive and Thrive, Dr. Sylvester Igbedioh has said.
He said inadequate breastfeeding will on the long run take a toll on the health of babies at their infancy and during their adult life, while huge cost would then be spent on treatment of various diseases that could have been prevented with simply practicing exclusive breastfeeding.
Stating this at the two-day workshop for health journalists in Lagos, tagged: ‘Skills in Utilising Media for Social and Behavioural Change with Focus on Infant and Young Child Feeding,’ he said parents who desire to see their children grow in good health, do well in school, and eventually become successful adults, should give them the basis for that – which is exclusive breastfeeding.
The workshop was organised by Alive and Thrive, a non-governmental organisation, managed by FHI 360.
