(Friday 14 July, 2017) A group of Parliamentarians supported by representatives from national and international Agencies, have formed a 9man committee to accelerate the pace towards the introduction of a national Code to regulate the sale of breastmilk substitutes across the nation. They also pledged to educate their constituencies on the benefits of exclusive breastfeeding to the child, mother and the family. These announcements came at the end of the 2-day dialogue on the status of child nutrition and the challenges posed to the life time mental and physical development of the country’s future – its children.
